although i should count us lucky enough to have a zoo in our city. but this is just so small, i find it hard to visit. it's easy to experience the habitats and animals in a few hours. the snack bar sells only junk food, and the animals are limited. there is plenty of land around the zoo and we have a fairly large city population, so i don't know why it's such a limited zoo. on the other hand, i enjoy the halloween festivities. the costumed employees handing out candy is creative!

PROS: at least we have a zoo
CONS: small, limited

It was not too difficult to locate the zoo in Des Moines. The kids had a lot of fun. The walking around the zoo was not too bad. They have quite a few animals and a concessions area to eat. The monkey area did smell.

Blank Park Zoo is a great local zoo. It is nicely laid out. There is free parking. Our favorite part of the zoo of all things was finding the penny smasher. There are a couple machines that we found you could do this. Cost is $.51, cheap souvenir to get the children. Recommend bringing a wagon to tote your items around or you will get tired.

You can purchase the membership on line.
