  • Decent zoo for Utah. This is the second time we have visited the zoo in 10 years. I would say that’s about right. Not something I need to do every year or even 5. Prices are reasonable and this time o...  more »

  • We love the Hogle Zoo. There is always the best workers around to help educate you about the animals. We have a pass and we still learn things every time we go. I love that they have fun things to do throughout the year. The bird show is great. I do hope they expand the zoo someday across the parking lot and make a new structure for parking across the street. I think this zoo could grow a lot!
  • I visit the Hogle Zoo on a regular basis. I enjoy the walk and the exercise I get from wandering the zoo. I find it to be an educational place to take my grandchildren. There's nothing better than a visual and Hands-On education for children. I love all the tactile exhibits that accompany the habitats for animals. They enable my grandchildren to have a a well-rounded experience. And I can always depend on their food to be healthy and kid friendly. The Hogle Zoo is a great place for your family to build long-lasting memories.
  • Overall, a great zoo to visit, and a good price. Make the trip to visit the museum on the same day. People are complaining about the price. Well considering what it goes to it is a good one compared to other zoos, and hand feeding prices are reasonable. One major issue though is when I went there were hundreds of kids just pounding on the glass destroying the sense of an ecosystem the zoo has tried to achieve. They need more people at exhibits to prevent this and or they need to better educate people entering. Will return, but if I see patrons doing this constantly here, I won't visit again. Several zoos don't use a glass terrarium but rather have a distance to view from.
  • We LOVED the bird show! I was pleasantly surprised for way smaller zoo to be so adorable. We haven't tried the food yet, but the show alone earns this zoo 5 stars for me. We had passes to the San Diego Zoo and this one is obviously way way smaller, but.. It's still a fun way to be outside and enjoy quality family time. They also have 2 playgrounds my kids really enjoy.
  • So much to see! We had such a great time. We went most recently on a day that was just about perfect temperature-wise and most of the animals were quite active! We are lunch at the spot down by the bears (I forget the name) and that was quite tasty. It's usually hard to get my son to eat when we're out at places like that but he loved it! We rode the train too. The train is fun but sort of short.
