The Memphis Zoo has come a long way since I was a child. Now, they are working very hard to provide natural habitats for all the animals. Cat country is gorgeous, Primate Canyon phenomenal, and I love the "Once Upon a Farm." Last time I went, they had pandas and the exhibit was great - set in imperial China, the pandas were munching on bamboo! The old cat house is a cafe and it's very cute! The zoo is great!

The zoo itself is nice, with quite a few animals and exhibits but the cost is outrageous. It's a nice "once a year" type thing to do but there is no way you could afford to take a family of 4 on a regular basis.

For generations, going to the zoo, with parents, grandparents, or you class from school has always been a delight!

The Memphis Zoo offers family entertainment and a full day of enjoyment. It is a relatively inexpensive way to learn and teach our children about animals from all over the world. There are many opportunities throughout the year to see unique and unusual creatures as well as the ""common"" animals we come to expect to view at any zoo. Memphis' Zoo shed new light and charm on specific species with their Cat Country & Primate Canyon natural habitats, the Barnyard, Herpetarium, Aquarium, and now the Panda exhibit. Bravo!

Pros: Family oriented, open-air viewing, Community involvement

The zoo is my favorite place in Memphis. There is always something new to discover. The way the children look when they see their favorite exhibit is the best. When their eyes light up and you know that moment is the highlight of their day.

The Memphis Zoo is definitely not just for the kiddies anymore. Starting in the early 90's, the Zoo has opened new and innovative exhibits focusing on education and preservation of different areas of the animal kingdom. From Cat Country to Primate Canyon to On the Farm to the Zoo's newest exhibit CHINA, each exhibit uses natural environments to showcase each animal. In the Zoo's CHINA exhibit, there is even a space for two giant pandas (the arrangement is still being worked out but they should arrive by the end of 2002). The Zoo is not only a great tourist attraction but also a great place for Memphians to visit and enjoy. Definitely a 10!

Large stone animals greet visitors at the entrance to the Memphis Zoo--that's just a glimpse of what the 70 acres beyond hold in store. Inside, flower-lined paved walkways wind past shade trees. The exhibits areā€¦
