“July4- Family Zoo trip”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Our family spent July 4th at the Memphis Zoo, Tn. It was a summer day (low 80's) with no humidity. We took our time walking the entire zoo which took around 4 hours. We saw penguins, amazing night animals from Australia, kimodo dragons, panda bears, and plenty more!
My two grandsons (age 3), loved every minute. We certainly enjoyed the open spaces and how each area was arranged in natural settings to see all the animals.
The zoo train was lots of fun for our toddlers to see the farm animals and chance to relax.
We definitely would recommend coming to this zoo.

“Fun & interactive zoo”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Wow, this zoo is fun! Located within a residential/college area (pretty surroundings).

$5 parking fee for non-members.

My kids loved the feeding interaction w/ birds (you buy some seeds attached to a stick and birds land on the stick you are carrying to eat the seeds---lots of cute photo opportunities).

When we went early in the morning, all the wild cats were out and about (and they had a lot of varieties).

We enjoyed watching the zookeepers hand feed and interact w/ the penguins. The penguins' personalities were cute and interesting.

There is a petting zoo with farm animals. We saw lots of wild hummingbirds in this part of the zoo.

All in all, this zoo is one of the best ones we've been to.

“A fun stop in Memphis”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We were 3 families with young children visiting Oxford, MS. We decided to take our kids to the Memphis Zoo for the day to allow the kids to burn some steam off. The exhibits were great and they were expanding even more. The staff was pleasant and the place was very clean. Will go again the next time we are in the area.

“Decent zoo - fun afternoon”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

I think I'm biased because it St. Louis we have a great zoo and it's free. I did think the $15 admission was a little steep. It was nice and once they are finish renovating the difference areas I think it could be an awesome zoo. Their big draw are the giant pandas, which are always fun to see.

The food was good, but definitely overpriced. All in all in was a fun afternoon and I would go back.

“Excellent zoo”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Very clean, great animal features with shade and water in almost all of them. All animals were active, which is rare in the middle of summer.
