So much fun – We took our 2 year old here and she loved it! The prices were reasonable. We rented the little push cart jeep thing and it worked out great. I forgot to bring a hat but the gift shop is right at the front with everything that you need. We loved it.

Over 4,000 animals representing more than 700 species make their home at this popular outdoor oasis in City Park. – In Short
It started in 1896 when Denver Mayor Thomas McMurray was given a bear named Billy Bryan. Today the institution sprawls across 80-plus acres and boasts thousands of animals. Open 365 days a year, this mile-high animal kingdom improves nearly every year with increased funding and improved facilities. The zoo is working to enhance the lives of the animals with naturalistic habitats like the indoor rain forest, Bear Mountain and a seven-acre primate area.

Smokers Not Welcome – There is NO smoking area on the zoo grounds, so, if you are a smoker, unless you want to walk half a mile or more to have a cigarette, the zoo is not the place for you. (In case someone feels the need to respond to this with a politically correct diatribe about the harmful effects of smoking, save it--all of us smokers already know.) This zoo is ok, but not anything special compared to other zoos; we also thought that the maps were not very helpful in finding exhibits. The park in which the zoo is located is wonderful, but we will skip the zoo in the future.

Good Zoo but not World Class – As a Denver Zoo member, I can say that Denver Zoo continues to make improvements but if you start to compare it to other zoos in other cities it's overall rating is about a seven (7). The Zoo's in San Diego or St. Louis for example beat this zoo hands down in almost every category. The St. Louis Zoo is Free and has great facilities and collection of animals due to the late Merlin Perkins. San Diego charges but it provides a greater overall experience in facilities and animals too.

Best of all worlds – Fabulous! We loved seeing animals from all worlds. Our favorite part was the underground view of the polar bears! Tropical discovery offers a warm vacation from the cold.

A great place to Visit – The Denver Zoo is the best attraction in town next to Ocean journey. I went home to Arizona for a vaction and visited the Phoenix Zoo two weeks ago, I hate to say this but the Denver Zoo beats the phoenix Zoo hands down in the both animale attractions and things to see and do! The Denver Zoo has more animales to see and its a lot more fun to walk around with out running out of breath or runing from big nasty bugs every 2 minutes. Also Denver as free day at the zoo unlike the Phoenix Zoo!

Go Wild! – I think the Denver Zoo ranks right up there with any other zoo in the U.S. They have every animal you could want to see, including tropical fish and BLUE FROGS in the Tropical Discovery exhibit. With their new parking structure that opened in 2002, there is no reason NOT to visit this wonderful zoo. Be sure to catch ZooLights in December - AWESOME!

Zoo member – Nothing else, for the price, offers so much for so many members of the family. We go often enough that we purchased a yearly Zoo Membership. We'll renew every year, and continue to enjoy the outings as often as we can.
