I've taken my kids to this annual event several times, and they always enjoy it. This year we rode the ferris wheel which was a new feature. I love all the decorations, and the zoo adds new things each year. Little ones will enjoy riding the trolley or the train through the zoo or you can also stroll on foot.... More

Cat country is amazing. In the middle of historic Overton park. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful old homes in Memphis. Try Overton square for some really wonderful restaurant choices after the zoo.

If want to have an experience that will go beyond intetainment to truly become a family affair, then I highly recommend the Memphis Zoo. Located in the Mid-town of Memphis with-in walking distance of a historic Cooper Young district that is in a perpetual growth cycle better known as Overton Square.

I can't say enough about the zoo! All of the staff is very friendly, helpful, and quick to answer any questions you may have about their job and the animals. Do your self a favor and go early during the week to avoid the busier times of day and be sure and catch the sealion show it is just amazing.

It was a rainy and cold Sunday. We almost didn't go, but I'm glad we did! The animals were so active because of the weather. Great zoo! Cats exhibit was especially amazing!

I love to go to the Memphis zoo. I like what they've done with the new areas for the animals. They look so much more at home.
