Denver Zoo is home to 3,800 animals representing more than 650 species and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Denver Zoo's mission is to secure a better world for animals through human understanding.
The Denver Zoo has long been an innovator in re-creating realistic habitats: Bear Mountain, built in 1918, was the first animal exhibit in the U.S. constructed of simulated concrete rockwork.
One of the nation’s most popular zoos, this City Park landmark takes you on a globetrotting safari. Go nose to nose with a polar bear, trade funny faces with gorillas and stretch necks with giraffes.
...sun screen and water. Lots of it.
Zoo lights for a fun evening.
Good offering of zoological adventures. The polar bear enclosure is not to be missed.
Bring your own food.
30 minutes before the Sea Lion show (2:30) the animals were really active and playful. Get a treat from the Northern Shores Cafe and enjoy watching the Sea Lions while you wait for the show to start.
Be sure to thank the volunteers! They do so much- your experience just would not be the same without them. Ask them questions and learn some cool information!
The best part about the zoo is you can fart anywhere and nobody suspects you.
Go Early stay Late,The Food is Good.. Great Zoo.. Wear Walking shoes
Never feed our pet the animals here no mater how cute and cuddly they look
Best zoo I've ever been to! My 3 year old loved it too!
Say hello to the snow leopards!
As you come in the gate - to right: elephants, bears, monkeys, birds, cheetahs. To the left: zebras, tigers, giraffes, polar bears, sea lions, fish and komodo dragons (Tropical Discovery).

Get here when the doors open, head north, and you'll have most exhibits to yourself.
Count the Toyota logos at Toyota Elephant Passage
Don't come on warm sunny days, you won't get to see a single animal out.
Ride a B-Cycle to and from the zoo, the streets around it are very easy to ride. No hills, bike lanes or sharrows and traffic is pretty calm.
Begun in 1896 with an orphaned black beer the zoo has grown to cover 80 acres. It now houses 641different species and was the first zoo in the US to use naturalistic zoo enclosures rather than cages.
It's nice and all, but I've never been to a zoo that you had to pay to get in. This should be free for instate residence.
Demonstration of teaching animal husbandry behaviors to the lions is way cool. An opportunity to see and hear them up close!
Make sure to check on the new Asian exhibit while you're here!
If you need to warm up, both Bird World and Tropical Discovery are warm and toasty.
If you're an animal lover....this place is a must!
Members get in at 8:30. Amazing time for the animals.
The new patio near the sea lions is a great place to have a snack and watch the show.
Stop by the Lorikeets and say "HI" to Shaina
Great place to spend time with the family. For privacy, if you check in, consider doing so as you are leaving rather than upon arrival.
Go early in the day and head the Lorikeet Adventure. $1 gets you nectar and the birds are plenty hungry and social so you'll get lots of face time!
$1 hot dogs near the okapi and buffalo...
Elephants kill more than 500 people every year. They have also been known to rape and kill rhinos
Check their website for free days and events.
The new Elephant Passage gives visitors a better look at a wide variety of exciting animals.
Finally a zoo with ample room for elephants. Great zoo. The map needs to be better though, a little more detail would help people not get lost.
Burger sliders with tater tots from the food truck were delicious but got overcharged and didn't realize it until after. Double-check all the prices.
Stop to see if the elephants are taking a shower in the waterfall!
Check out the baby zebra
Get there early
I smell critter poo.
Good job guys !! Nice zoo !!
