When I went, a good deal of the exhibits were closed. The ones that were there were amazing. This zoo is rather small compared to others that I have seen.

Zoo Atlanta is a wonderful zoo, especially for families with young children. They have an amazing play area complete with carousel and train. Some people say the Zoo is rather small, however, we’ve been members for the past 2 years and there are some exhibits we still haven’t made it too (ex: the petting zoo) because there is always so much to see and do. The exhibits are great-many of them, like the Lions and the Pandas, have glass walls so you always have a good view. They also have an amazing bird show as well as the opportunity to feed the birds in the arboretum. (Bird seed sticks are available for purchase at the front of the park).

This is the right place to take your kids with you they will defiantly like it . What an incredible place to visit and see many of the wild animals, It's clean, kid friendly, has great service, and a huge assortment of animals. Highly recommended!




Whatever you do, do NOT buy their food! I would suggest packing a lunch. My boyfriend and I ate at a diner near the pandas and paid over $20 for a meal that tasted as if it was left overs thrown into a wrap.

Can I Get a Hungry Hippo for $300, Please...?

This week, I had the opportunity to visit the zoo and I'm still bothered by the condition of the animals. The lion is supposed to be the King of the Zoo, however, he looked more like a big, hungry housecat from the neighborhood. His bones and ribs could be seen through his coat. The pandas were filthy and they, too, looked exhausted and underfed. The alligator and turtles had barely any water in their habitat and were covered in dry mud, algae and pollen. No, I'm not a zookeeper, however, I have done enough research to know that something wasn't right with the animals at Zoo Atlanta. Even my students continued asking what was wrong with the animals. I'd just told my family, the day before, that we'd get annual passes for the zoo. However, after visiting with the school, we'd probably be better off visiting the aquarium or the neighborhood lake.

The Zookeeper

I recently moved to Atlanta and my first stop was Zoo Atlanta. I am so happy I took time out to visit the animals and made it a fun day!

Everyone must take a day off from work, home, etc and just enjoy the animals that will definitely put a smile on your face.

Glad We Have Zoo Atlanta

We are really glad we became a Zoo Atlanta member years ago. It's a great activity for our 6 year son on the weekends. He never gets tired of seeing the animals. I would also strongly encourage the membership, especially if you live in the area. Having the membership also allows us to take additonal family, friends or play date buddies. We also love the Zoo's summer camp. It's a little pricey but again our son always enjoys that week or two interacting with the animals and the Zoo Camp Team. Because we are close, we often will go over during the spring and summer and just play on the playground and ride the train.
