We have made several trips to Zoo Atlanta with our young grandson, and each time vow not to return. The pandas lure us back, and we decided to go to see the panda babies, which I love to watch on Panda Cam. The babies are adorable and I could have watched them for hours. The viewing area was packed, so hard to stay more than a few minutes to watch. Rest of zoo is sad, and in not so great part of town. Parking is horrible, we drove in circles for so long to get a spot. The map is confusing, and the hilly terrain is challenging at times. So many animals not on exhibit. Elephants in such a small area, and they are so muddy and sad looking. Zebras muddy too. Otters are cute when they are out. Flamingos are pretty. Hard to see most of the animals, which are far away. Gorilla viewing area is nice but packed and hot. Train is a draw for our grandson, but it is a short ride with nothing much to see. They need to rebuild the zoo in a better area with more space. If they can do it with the Braves stadium, they can do it with the zoo. Atlanta deserves better.
