Pros: experience the thrill of the wild

This place is immaculately kept as far as the lawns and gardens. I remember being a little kid and taunting the snow leopard. It really wanted to eat me. People really ARE the most dangerous animals in a zoo. Best zoo on the planet.

After an hour and a half, my wife and I left to zoo. There were so many screaming and out of control children there that after a while, we wondered if the real animals were behind the fences or in front of them.\r
Bathrooms were gross,

A good place to spend the day!
Take the time to meet with animals you don't normally see. Watch out for those gorilla's, they have good aim.

I love this zoo! There is a new Butterfly Exhibit that is incredible. The animals in the African Safari section are penned in such a way that you feel like they are within reach if you just stretch your hand out.

Always innovating and adding new exhibits to enhance the zoo-going experience, Brookfield Zoo certainly deserves to take its place as one this nation's most progressive zoological parks.

I always enjoy this zoo. Even though it cost money to get in, and some special exhibts/shows cost extra. Tired from walking? Take the Zoo trolley all around the zoo(more $$).
