The Denver Zoo is quite the spectacle. Many great attractions that you can spend all day at. Toyota has invested a lot into the elephant exhibit making it very unique and high quality.

In my opinion, the Denver Zoo is fabulous! Easy to park, easy to walk around, lots of shade, good food, clean, great exhibits and small enough to see it all in one visit. My only wish is if they would please get some Chimpanzees!!!

The zoo is set up in a circle and with minimal gawking you can easily go through this in under 2 hours. Add any time for extra stopping, meals, and breaks. It is not a large zoo. The concessions are average and high priced, so...More

Hi. I believe they do. Unlike the Denver Botanical Gardens and the Museum of Nature and Science, I also believe they charge for them but I would call the zoo to make sure. Policies change from year to year and I don't know... More

Denver weather can be anything at that time of year. You can have high 70's or snow all in the same week. If you have some flexibility in the day you are planning to visit then I would go on a sunny day if you want a nice... More
