    Awesome place for the Family! We have an annual membership which we take full advantage of. There are Zoo Nights, Boo at the Zoo, and so many more fun activities for the family to do. Awesome!

    Food is overpriced. Bring your own!

    Pick up a map and an event schedule as soon as you get in. If you're in the right place at the right time, you can see all sorts of cool zoo chats and events with your favorite animals.

    Alex Cleveland · June 21, 2015

    No many animals outside

    Stingray Bay is definitely a place to go. The stingrays literally just come right up to you when you put your hand in!

    A great place for kids. If it's cold out you definitely want to bring a jacket cause of all the open space.

    A beautiful zoo, way better than Lincoln park zoo. The animals have much more space to roam.

    If you're going to visit more than twice in a year, the memberships make sense

    I have loved this zoo since I was a kid. Look for free weekends in the winter. Check out 'Sexy Shrimp' at the penguin exhibit.

    The Holiday Magic activities are always super fun. Not to mention some of the big cats are only active at night :)

    Opened on July 1, 1934, it is a favorite place for all types of animal lovers. Must visit: the monkey house and the dolphin show.

    Been a member for forever. Wear comfy shoes. Stay away from the eatery by the penguin house RUDE STAFF! Beware of the peacocks and geese they aren't afriad. Dolphin show is amazing!

    Lots of free days in winter! The Play Zoo is fantastic for kids, and there's a baby gorilla in the big primate house. Parking is $10 but on weekends park free at high school outside south gate.
