Wonderful day trip

Economical, fun, diversity of animals and food was really good!

Really enjoyed the bears, hippos and close parking.

The train was really cool. Multiple pick up locations. So, strongly urge good walking shoes in case you miss one of the pick ups.

The zoo was clean, workers were nice. Not many animals out when we went because it was cooler most likely. The zoo is free and we were able to park on the main street so parking was free too. Worth the visit overall. Kids had fun with the hippo and polar bear.

For us - because we wanted to walk through Forest Park, even the parking was free. On-site Zoo parking is $15. Amazing exhibits, helpful staff, visible animals. What more could you ask for? Consider a donation to keep places like this open!

We have enjoyed numerous zoos across the US. I can't think of another one that was free! It's a great zoo. Up close and personal to lots of the animals. Seems to be a year round zoo as most animals have inside and outside habitats. Parking is $15 you can park on the street for free.

It was a good time by all. Go and have fun.

The zoo is very large and has a very diverse number of exhibits. You can spend the whole day looking at all of the animals and attractions here. Very clean and FREE. Definitely worth a visit
