We went in the winter, so many of the animals were unobservable in their indoor enclosures. There was an Indian elephant out that looked mighty lonesome. Many of the enclosures seemed a bit small. We were done with the zoo in less than two hours, and that's with spending almost 25 minutes with the orangutans (the volunteers there were amazingly... More

We were looking to spend a couple of hours doing something other than skiing and based on reviews thought this was a good idea. On the up side this is easy to find, has ample parking, and friendly staff. The zoo is easy to navigate and well sign posted. The gift shop has a great range to select from and... More

Great family activity and worth a visit. Kids and adults both loved the animals. Easy to get to, with plenty of parking.

Beautiful zoo, Christmas Lights thru December were wonderful. We also take the family at least twice a year. Always something new to see.

We have a family membership to the Zoo and my kids always have a good time. There are always tons of animals out (at other zoos we've visited I feel like we would be lucky to see any of the big animals). They recently built a new playground, which the kids love. Always fun!

IF you can stomach watching the animals eat get there early, they are also very active in the morning. WE all know the stars of the Hogle zoo. We have not been to an exhibit there that we did not enjoy. cool days are as good as hot ones just dress accordingly

This is a nice Zoo, not too big, so you don't get exhausted at the end of the day. You can see pretty much all of it in two hours. There are some nice places to eat - burgers, pizza - and some places for kids to play - playground, carrousel. My kid liked it very much.

Hogle Zoo is a great place to visit. The exhibits have much- improved over the years to more natural habitats and it is fun to watch the animals in a more relaxed setting. Great cafeteria and well-stocked gift store.

The zoo is a great place to hang out with the family. They let you bring in coolers with your own lunch which is nice, and there are several places throughout the park where you can have a picnic. They have spent a lot of money on the zoo improving the grounds and the animal habitats. It is one of... More

I always got a pad when the kids wete younger, but now that is just me and my husband, we still do! nice to just stroll around. I wish they would get the cats and hippos and crocs back they had when I was a kid, but the upgrades they have made are amazing. I wish they were open longer... More
