People tend to check in during these times:
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 Lego sculptures are gone (all except the lion which has over 56k Legos). Get ready for zoo light! December 4-January 3, 2016.
With 80 acres there is a lot to see. With the construction of bear mountain it became the first zoo in the country to use naturalistic enclosures. Check out the list of babies currently available too!
Love this zoo. Animals have plenty of room, elephant path is nice, the feline house is awesome. Check out the lorikeet area: it's also free. Pretty great trip. And yes, the picture is a hyena in a box
Craft beers throughout the zoo make for the perfect Saturday outdoors
There is so much other things to do than just look at animals.
They serve beer at some of the kiosks for us big children over 21!
Located at City Park, this family friendly setting offers a Tropical Discovery exhibit along with your favorite mammals plus plants, insects, birds, fish and reptiles. Don't miss the gift shop.
I enjoyed watching the trainers do the elephant show. Zoo was well maintained and clean as well.
Feeding the giraffes was so cool. Definitely a must do!
We have been there a couple times now and we liked it a lot. Other than the sad looking lion it was great
Best zoo I've been to. Animals are really active and there's a great Asian culture exhibit where the elephants are. Also: find the semi hidden food truck!
Big. Close animals. Eclectic food that wasn't too bad or terribly expensive. One of my favorite zoos.
Not as great as the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo down in the Springs but it still makes for a fun day! Make sure to see the shows like the Elephant and Sea Lion. Be wary of the food prices. Pack a lunch.
Free days are great. Lots of animals and also lots of staff to tell you about the animals and you can even touch some ..
Large, so plan your visit, tons of active animals and animal demonstrations. Can get crowded in the summer.
Such a fantastic zoo!!
Bring your own food. You can avoid the crowds at the snack bars and have a picnic.
Go through quickly and you've still spent an hour and a half there! I thought the birds were the coolest exhibit
Ride the train. Kids go cuckoo.
Such an amazing treasure we have in Denver, the free days can be a bit busy, but mid-week trips lets you explore with out the crowds!
Have alot of food because it is soooo BIG!
Check out the primates with your prime mate.
Check their website for free days and events.
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.
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.
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.
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 !!
i am going tomorrow so much so exited all of animal
Best zoo I've ever been to! My 3 year old loved it too!
2pm elephant demonstration at Toyota elephant passage
Was not impressed with the zoo. Most of the animals were inside and not able to be seen. It didn't seem well up kept. Will not be going back. Cheyenne mountain zoo is a lot better.
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!
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.
Loved Zoo Lights but parking was not fun! Go early before they open for Zoo Lights or later if possible for a better parking experience.
The best part about the zoo is you can fart anywhere and nobody suspects you.
Took my grand kids to "BOO at the ZOO" wonderful day!!!!
Demonstration of teaching animal husbandry behaviors to the lions is way cool. An opportunity to see and hear them up close!
You MUST go early to find parking
The new exhibits are gorgeous, well worth the wait!
