We come every year live to see the white alligator! Amazing. Unfortunately a good part of the park is closed now (no elephants or monkeys etc :( the Asian section is closed now)

“Nice little zoo in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Fun little zoo. Skip the $7 train ride. The zoo is quite maneagable walking. Don't miss the LA bayou section. The white alligators are a rare site.

“Nice day at the zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Relatively small zoo (compared to those in other cities) but one with some quality exhibits. It's accessible via the bus from downtown/the French Quarter, which was essential. We didn't get to see the gators (we were too tired), but the giraffe exhibit and some of the others were very impressive. If possible, don't go on a really hot and humid day, especially since the heat will drive some of the animals to hide. Oh, and if you get a "smoothie" to cool down -- just realize they can't give you straws (to protect the animals), so you'll be eating it with a spoon.

“What a treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Visited with friends while in NOLA. We all agreed it would be the perfect place to have a membership to if you lived in the area.
