We went to the zoo for my sisters birthday. They have made a lot of improvements but all the lions weren't there because they were rebuilding their homes-kind of disappointing. It was still fun to see what animals were there still. It would be nice if Salt Lake City could get a lot bigger zoo because we finished going through... More

My family really loves this zoo. I feel like they do a really good job to include the community, and to protect and preserve the animals.

For a smaller Zoo this is a great place for any family. Constant improvements make it one of the more fun stops in Salt Lake City.

I wouldn't spend $1 visiting this prison for animals. It is far from a world class zoo that allows animals outside often. They are confined in cell blocks unless it's feeding time or time for visitors. Close this zoo down!

This is a well stocked, well maintained, and easy to navigate zoo. We took the grandkids here and had a phenomenal experience. The staff are informative, friendly, and very professional in their interactions with guests. Take the family here for a great family activity.

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

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!
