    A little bit far away from the school. But definitely worth your to go there. Tuesday afternoon is free for local residents. Remember bring your student ID card.

    Did you know? The idea for the zoo began in 1904 as a home for Natch, a Southern black bear who was the mascot of the Memphis Turtles baseball team and was being kept chained to a tree in Overton Park Read more

    One of the best zoos in the country! The enclosures are wonderful and spacious. A great array of animals to see - it's also lovely not to see them pacing like at many other zoos.

    I have been to several zoos over the years with our little sister and cousin. So much easier to see the animals up close in a natural environment visiting from other places be sure to stop by

    Make sure to park along the free street parking and not on the Greensward, it'll save you $5 and the Greensward!

    Fashion jewelry has always been an important part of accessorizing in women especially young people because it allows you to be as stylish as you choose without going overboard

    They often feed the Grizzly Bears around 1pm at Teton Trek near the pond. It's a great way to see these big bears up close and personal. Check the daily schedule for details.

    My favorite parts are always the cats and the primates. The zoo has an awesome area for the polar bears & wolves in the back of the zoo in new enclosures.

    If you have little ones, pack swim trunks, bathing suits, and towels in the summer. The geyser at Teton Trek and the fountain at the entrance are faborite places to splash!

    If you're going to see Birds and Bees. They open at 10am and close at 4:45. Best time to go is in the morning when they're hungry.

    Creatures of the Night is a must! Along with eating at the Cat House Cafe while looking @ the monkeys out the window. Sweet potato fries are expensive but worth it!

    Bring snacks since the food is overpriced. (It is frowned upon to have your children play in the water, so do NOT bring bathing suits. That's just dumb.)

    To quickly get to the Pandas walk through the primate exhibit. No need to spend money on the tram.
