Como Park is a great little park for a family outing. We take our young granddaughter there often. It is the perfect zoo for young children. The conservatory is a fun extra. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it!

The carousel is lovely and from 11-4 it was free on Monday. The botanical center was beautifully kept, with a wide variety of plants, bonsai and multiple gardens to visit. Unfortunately, we picked a day that was too warm for the zoo! I will definitely...More

An incredibly sophisticated and beautifully executed presentation of flora and fauna. You can not help feeling that this entire facility was designed and operated just for you. A soulful respite.

This conservatory is wonderful....and free. There is a place to give donations but no admission fees. Twice I've taken my 90 year old mother and 10 year old grand niece and we've all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My mother uses a walker and had no problems...More

The zoo is awesome. The conservatory is gorgeous. Tropical plants to beautiful flowers. There are also rides, a picnic area, fire pit, lake with a restaurant and free concerts evenings in the summer. The best part is admission is free!

This was a lovely day spent at a very nice little free zoo. We did pay the suggested donation upon entering, but there was no pressure to do so, so it can truly be free if needed. It was a hot day when we visited,...More

It's a wonderful little zoo! Upon entrance, you have a chance to glimpse the past, and see the old-school style of primate cages (which were absolutely atrocious and embarassing, and happily now empty)...but you're simultaneously greeted with a beautiful pond, waterfall-fed and full of flamingos!...More

If you're in MN in the winter and need to see and smell green, the Como Conservatory is a gorgeous respite from the cold, a balm to senses of sight and smell. In early spring, the tulips and special flowers show is spectacular. Families enjoy...More
