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 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.
Good offering of zoological adventures. The polar bear enclosure is not to be missed.
Zoo lights for a fun evening.
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.
Join the Zoo's mailing list to learn about free events.
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!
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).
Don't come on warm sunny days, you won't get to see a single animal out.
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.
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!
Demonstration of teaching animal husbandry behaviors to the lions is way cool. An opportunity to see and hear them up close!
Say hello to the snow leopards!
Get here when the doors open, head north, and you'll have most exhibits to yourself.
Count the Toyota logos at Toyota Elephant Passage
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.
I smell critter poo.
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.
Make sure to check on the new Asian exhibit while you're here!
See the monkeys. A trip to the zoo without monkeys is like using a smartphone with no Internet.
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.
Gotta go for brew at the zoo. Kind of crowded, but a fun time.
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...
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!
