There is NO smoking area on the zoo grounds, so, if you are a smoker, unless you want to walk half a mile or more to have a cigarette, the zoo is not the place for you. (In case someone feels the need to respond to this with a politically correct diatribe about the harmful effects of smoking, save it--all of us smokers already know.) This zoo is ok, but not anything special compared to other zoos; we also thought that the maps were not very helpful in finding exhibits. The park in which the zoo is located is wonderful, but we will skip the zoo in the future.

As a Denver Zoo member, I can say that Denver Zoo continues to make improvements but if you start to compare it to other zoos in other cities it's overall rating is about a seven (7). The Zoo's in San Diego or St. Louis for example beat this zoo hands down in almost every category. The St. Louis Zoo is Free and has great facilities and collection of animals due to the late Merlin Perkins. San Diego charges but it provides a greater overall experience in facilities and animals too.
