Where else can you visit polar ice caps, a tropical forest, the African savannah and a jungle all in one day? The zoo is a state-of-the-art habitat featuring more than 3,500 animals representing 600 species. Visit with sloths, tree frogs, and a moray eel at the indoor Tropical Discovery exhibit. Or wander through the seven-acre Primate Panorama exhibit. From cold climate penguins to tropical flamingos, Bird World will inspire your appreciation of winged things. It is open 365 days a year.
I have lived near or at a driveable distance from the denver zoo for 30 years. We use to visit the zoo 2 to 3 times a year. We should have gone to the museum. I had my 2 daughters my mom and my adult son and his girlfriend that has never been to a large zoo. Most of the animals were hidden from view or not in their enclosures. The shows were all canceled. NO forwarning or letting us know that they were when we got there. Kids were chasing the geese and zoo staff were watching it happen. Things thrown at the animals by kids and staff did nothing to correct the problem. Never been so dissapointed in the zoo as we were this trip. Never again will we purchase a season pass and my mother has said she will never buy one again. Wasted most of a day thinking it would be nice to show and it was a total dud. The museum or Elitch gardens is more worth the money. Only good part of the visit to the zoo was a girl in the front gift shop named rachel. She was nice and treated us right. I don't ask for much but when i go to a zoo i figure to see the animals. I'm not a watcher of the shows as much as seeing the different animals and we didn't even get that. Scottsbluff zoo in Nebraska is better then the Denver zoo. even if the Apes do try to throw things at us at least they are visiable there.
this was no ordinary trip to the zoo... i never before in my life have seen polar bears doing it! and that was fun to watch... the monkeys threw fecal matter as normal and i actually could examine it from the glass and see what they had for dinner! i was amazed! i cant wait to return and see it happen next spring!
I loved the set up of the zoo. something that bothered me was how dirty the cages were.they werent taken care of at all either... plus there was like 15 benches through the whole zoo.plus they were in the sun the whole time that was the only thing that bothered me
The Denver Zoo was one of our favorite stops on a recent trip. The Zoo is well kept and very nicely landscaped. The animals were all beautiful and appeared to be extremely well cared for. Several teachers were seen around the park leading groups of children around the zoo and would stop to educate them on the various animals. It was very cute. Loved every minute!
