Overview

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.

Visited with adults and children 3-8.... all had wonderful time!!! Extremely clean with wonderful exhibits. The kids loved the splash pad and playground at the end. A real treat that we were able to bring in food and drink as well as free parking!

We've been to Atlanta many times but have never visited the zoo. It's one of only four zoos in the country to have pandas and that's what we went, but there's so much more. As for the pandas, they put on a show. We got...More

I spent several hours walking around, and another 5+ hours painting the animals! I loved it-- the only drawback was the animals that were off exhibit.😩More

We love that you love the zoo! We apologize that some animals were off exhibit yesterday. It could have be due to the fact there was a vet check, weather, lunch, etc. As long as you loved your zoo experience is all that matter. We're...More

This was one of our five stop with our City Passes. This was a nice zoo with lots of shade trees over the paths that we were walking on. The trees really seemed to shield us from the sun while looking at some beautiful animals...More

Many Zoos are depressing but for a small Zoo Atlanta has created great habitats for their large Gorillas, Orangutans and the famous Panda Twins. Even on a hot day, the animals were active and engaged. We took lyft after reading about parking limitations, but their...More

We brought our two toddlers and we all loved it. First off, the zoo is neither too big nor too small. It's just the right size. There is plenty of shade so it was great on a really hot summer day. The animals were very...More

This is one of my favorite places to visit with my grand daughter. The distance covered is reasonable, the animals wonderful, and the attractions well kept. The discussion by zoo keepers add to the visit.

Well, let's see... one of four zoos in the U.S. to have pandas and they have four? I'm on board! On top of that, when we went there were baby orangutans, and gorillas. Oh, and sloths. Those are a hot animal right now, but I'm...More

We decided to take our boys to the zoo since it was part of the City Pass. Good variety of animals. A couple major draw backs to our visit was the vending and the children's "rides." Neither opened until 10:30-11:00. This was disappointing because we...More
