This zoo is great. Although it is older, it meets the entertainment level expected of a city the size of Louisville. The kids had a GREAT time at the splash park!

As a local to the area I was extremely disappointed by my zoo visit today. For $15.95 a person (for basic admission) and a $5 parking fee for a half-empty parking lot, me and a friend got to enjoy a zoo filled with sleeping animals and empty exhibits. At least one third of the exhibits were inhabited by temporarily closed or birds are gone for winter signs in the middle of April. If not a sign, many exhibits were painted over glass or boarded over with plywood. Most all of the interactive exhibits were not working and even some the non-interactives were not working or gone altogether. The only reason I wanted to go to the zoo today was to feed the lorikeets in the Lorikeet Landing exhibit, an interactive parrot-feeding exhibit. By the time I got there at 1:30pm (regular hours 10-5pm) they were done selling nectar and were going to close the exhibit at 2pm. I understand that sleeping, tamed zoo animals are a given in some zoos and no animal can live in a cage all year 'round but if you insist on only two third of your exhibits filled then you shouldn't be charging full price. Certainly not for $15.95. Certainly not adding a $5 parking fee. This trip was a serious waste of my time and money.
