“It is getting better”
Reviewed August 7, 2010

Now a lot of people have complained about Hogle zoo but they are improving their facilities and the overall quality of life for the animals. They have recently completed a big cat area providing more room for the tigers and such. They have also almost doubled the space the elephants have and within a few years they will complete a large arctic themed area and will be getting polar bears.
I love this zoo.

“I felt sick”
Reviewed April 27, 2010

When I visited the Hogle Zoo I was almost in tears from the conditions of the animals and the size and conditions of their habitats. The camels fur is all matted the wolves area is just a big slope the size of a house and the giraffes have to walk around on concrete. Boo Hogle zoo boo Utah.

“Perfect in Fall Weather”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

We love going to Hogle Zoo every few months and our favorite time of the year by far is fall. School is back in session, so there aren't too many people. In October when the weather is cool it's also fun to bring a warm lunch. The animals are active and the baby elephant is adorable. Love it.

“Very nice”
Reviewed July 14, 2009

I am not a big zoo person, feel bad that animals are caged up. But I had a very nice experience here. The landscaping is beautiful and the animals seem very well cared for. My 2 year old nephew loves the merry go round and the train ride. Just a very beautiful location.
