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.

It was a good time, enjoyed the fellowship with family. Enjoyed the little ones looking and reacting to the animals.

I always enjoy a walk around this zoo to see all the animals. I live a block away. Our family are members. The new reptile house is fascinating, and the Pandas are always enetrtaining

We took our 2 year old to the Atlanta zoo to see elephants and he was so excited when we saw them. This zoo is really nice and just big enough to have everything you could want to see at a zoo. It's not overwhelmingly big. We went just before the giant panda twins were leave (they are going to... More

It was a breezy cool day that we went... The admission people were very courteous and enjoyable. The Zoo is really nice. Some animals were not out due to the temperature that day. Some concessions were open some were not. We missed seeing the Pandas but we plan to return in the spring next year to see more. There is... More

Decent zoo. Not that many animals. Be prepared to be in a crowd when the Panda Bears are out, if they are out.

Although smaller than expected, the zoo was well-maintained, with spacious exhibits for the animals to enjoy. I went in the middle of the day on a weekday, but I was surprised that there were no concessions available. This might not be typical of the zoo, but I would recommend bringing snacks if you plan on staying a while!

We have had season passes for 2 years. It pays for itself if you go twice. The zoo is awesome and spread out, so wear comfortable shoes. Very stroller friendly! The BOO at the Zoo event was awesome! Parking is limited, so try to arrive at opening if possible.

I've been to many zoos, and this is near the top of my favorites. Great layout, great variety of animals, and a pretty neat kids area. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
