Owner description: This extraordinary zoo, one of the oldest in the U.S., underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in the 1980s and is still expanding. Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Four panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

The zoo is always fun. Everyone loves the zoo, right? The Atlanta zoo is very well mapped out. It's not too big but its not too small. It is just the right size. They have new baby pandas.
Take your swim suits and a beach towel there is a splash park for the kids. They sell bracelets for the rides but there aren't that many rides. There is a carousel, a rock wall, and a jump house. You can take your own drinks in if you have them in your backpack. The bathrooms were very clean and they are convenient.

“Multi-generational fun”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We visited the zoo over Labor Day weekend with three generations from ages 5-66. It kept us all entertained. This is a very accessible attraction. It has motorized scooters and wheel chairs for rent, which helped since I broke my toe the day before in the hotel. The scooters have a wonderful turning radius and clip along at a nice speed. Although the visit was shortened by rain, there are many places you can ride out a rainstorm. They could use more misting fans. They only had 2. The Marta at the airport to Five Points and the bus to Cherokee Street leave you right at the zoo entrance. I nice way to spend the afternoon.

I was very excited when I found out that Zoo Atlanta has a Red Panda and a Sloth.
Turns out they don't actually have either of those animals... Contrary to their website... BOO!!!

*The otter feeding was way too cute!!!
