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.

“Not what I remembered”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

The zoo has a wide variety of animals and lots of interactives for the kids to learn.
The gorillas are great and so are the pandas.
A few of the habitats seemed to be having work done. We only got to see the giraffes from quite a distance.
We went for educators appreciation day so it was pretty crowded for this time of year. Would have been a little disappointed if we had paid full price.

We usually go here about four times a year. Always something different to see each and everytime. Pretty cool. Its getting a little expensive.

“Terrible, just terrible”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Its been a few years since I went here.But at the time,considering we were in one of the
top 15 cities in the US. This zoo was terrible, just terrible. Don't waste your time,money
& effort. Its small, unorganized. Most of the pins are empty. And everything is spread
out. It was a great disappointment. I wil never visit again, least not anytime soon.
If you're looking for something better to do and wanna see animals, now the Atlanta
Aquarium is very nice. Give it a try...leave the zoo here be. (IMO)
