Animals are up close in pleasant surroundings. Good interpretation and signage. We went in the middle of the day - big mistake, most of the critters were taking their noon siestas. Probably more active in the morning. Just the right length for a couple of hour jaunt.

I've been coming to Hogle Zoo for years and it is always enjoyable! It's big enough that you can easily spend a half-day leisurely observing, but not so big that the kids get too tired before seeing just about everything. All the animals seem content and well-cared for!

I hadn't visited Hogle Zoo in a few years and wasn't thrilled to go back, but when I returned I was so pleasantly surprised and loved my day! It seems like they had added exhibits and also remodeled parts - there was a lot to do! The best part was getting there right on time for the seal training -... More

Took my elderly mother and we enjoyed walking the zoo. Most of the animals were visible, except some of the big cats, but it was daylight. Had lunch, not too many choices but okay. It is a nice fairly newly upgraded zoo , nothing great but made for a pleasant day.

We went here late one Sunday afternoon with our grandson. We had about 2 hours before they closed and that was plenty of time to see everything. The lions are so close to you! It was amazing. They have a trains and a merry go round the kids loved.

We had a great fun day. Animals were out and in full force.y only complaint was that the volunteers seemed to be not so knowledgeable an example would be the young man holding an ostrich egg didn't know what an ungulate was and couldn't answer any questions. He seemed to not want to engage anyone. Other employees were nice and... More

Great place to spend with the kids. Train ride was $2/pp 5 min rode but totally worth it. Very fun and educative. Kid friendly. Wide variety of species to view.

I grew up going to the San Diego Zoo so my idea of a Zoo is humongous. But for the size of property Hogle Zoo has to work with they are putting it to good use. The new improvements are making it fun to come back to throught the year.

The Hogle Zoo is a great family attraction. Small enough that you get to see the whole zoo without tiring out.
