Who doesn't love the zoo? Who doesn't love it for free? I always enjoy the St. Louis zoo and it's one of the best places to go for free. The river walk and penguin area are always good.

A nice outing with the family. The animals were great, what a nice varity. There was a train that took you around the park as well. They also had some fun things going on for the holiday.

Having been to many of the nation's zoos, nothing seems to compare to the quality of the St. Louis Zoo, along with the fact that it's FREE. San Diego, D.C., Chicago, Omaha.... they all cost money and don't have the charm of St. Louis' zoo. The park surrounding it is fabulous - the site of the 1904 World's Fair. The large, open-flight bird cage in the zoo from the fair is a real treat as well. The new home to the penguins and puffins was especially enjoyable on a hot, July day. You'd be hard pressed to find a better zoo and at a better price!

I have visited zoos all over the world and none compares to the St. Louis Zoo. The St. Louis zoo is clean, attractive, and best of all FREE.

In addition to being FREE, the St. Louis Zoo is open all year long. Give it a try in December or January. You'll be surprised how ACTIVE the animals are! In the Summer, they are lazy and lay in the shade. In the Winter, they run around and play. It's great! And don't miss the bear feedings, around 4:30pm.
Also, park on the street for free; the lot cost $7.00

This zoological is decades ahead of any other zoo I have visited, including the zoo in San Diego. The St. Louis Zoo has do a fantastic job in designing a park that reflects a more natural setting for the animals and, also, developed a large number of interactive events and areas for park patrons. The staff is knowledgeable, professional and very friendly, and the park it self is beautifully landscaped, well shaded, and impeccably maintained. Amenities abound for visitors, and you can even bring in your own lunch, if you prefer. All of this, and the admission price is $0.

Pros: parking, location of park, no admission costs

Cons: amenity prices high

Don't misunderstand--I love the St. Louis Zoo, but "free" to me implies "no cost." I get many freebies in my mail--all with a shipping and handling charge. SL Zoo is much like that. True, the attraction is free--the parking near the attraction costs $8.00. Just keep that in mind before you make the trek.

I was born and raised in St. Louis.
When I was 19 I moved to North Carolina, since I have lived in 4 other states. I was shocked to find that St. louis is the only zoo in the U.S. that doesnt charge admission. Not only does it not charge but in my book it is one of the best zoo's. Over the last few years they have been renevating it to keeps its attractions new and exciting.

I can't say enough good things about the St. Louis Zoo. I have lived in a number of cities and this one has all the others beat. Between the attractions and the attractive layout, the Zoo offers many days worth of discovery and enjoyment!
The children's zoo is my particular favorite with the opportunity if provides for real interaction between visitors and animals. Love it!!!

I remember when Phil the Gorilla died in 1958 -- I was 9 years old and I was so sad .... we went to Phil every summer. Now there is an awesome memorial statue of him.

I've been attending the St. Louis City Zoo for over 55 years. I always find something that's new, exciting and interesting. It's the best zoo in the midwest and it's FREE!!! Sitting in the middle of Forest Park right down the hill from the St. Louis Art Museum, also FREE - you can't beat the combination. Come and see for yourself.

I love the St. Louis Zoo. One, because it is free and two its nearby my home so i can just pop in when i want. If you have kids and you want to pay a few bucks you can ride the train around or visit the children's petting zoo. I love seeing the animals the most though. oh and you dont have to pay for parking. there is always parking on the streets somewhere!

I've lived in many states and seen many zoos. Nothing can compare to my love of the St. Louis Zoo in my hometown because:

1) It is so beautiful you forget where you are....it simply takes your spirit to another place.

2) It's very large and has quite a variety of animals.

3) The animals looked healthy and no signs of mistreatment.

4) It is part of history dating back the 1904 World's Fair.

5) Children and Adults love the train that gives you a wonderful view of the park.

6) The Petting Zoo is enjoyed by all, etc, etc.

It is simply the Best In The Us!

The Saint Louis Zoo is the best place to visit while you are in Saint Louis. Not only is it free but there is so much to see and do. Many new exhibits have been added in the past few years. The River's Edge is amazing and should be on everyone's to-see list. The zoo is truly a Saint Louis landmark and something we are very proud of.

I can't go to any other zoo now. St. Louis Zoo is free, and it's so great. It has historical buildings, and a wide range of animals. I never get the feeling that these animals are in misory. The conditions are very nice. Plus the whole place has a very educational theme. It is a wonderful place, and it's FREE!
