Not the best zoo but enjoyable visit. Felt that the big cat enclosures were too small and lacking environmental enrichment as were many other exhibits. However, many were done very well. The mixed species exhibits were great! One bad thing though: very minimal labeling of...More

greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
