In 54 hectares (134 acres) of natural setting, Louisville Zoo houses 1,700 different mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish, and invertebrates. This zoo was one of the first ones in the world to introduce rotating exhibits--where animals are moved throughout different habitats in order to have a better quality of life. Stroll through themed exhibits, such as a gorilla forest and a glacier town. See rare animals, such as an albino alligator. Take a train ride, or climb and balance on ropes above the zoo at an attraction for children and families. You can also interact with the zookeepers and learn about the animals.

I love the Louisville Zoo! I've been going here since I was a child and it's so much fun! I do recommend getting the membership though. 1. You can contribute to the amazing Zoo 2. Things are a tad cheaper. Such as entrance, food, and things to do. Plus, parking is free. No need to wait in line either. Just walk up to the gate, scan your card and enter!
Wow! What a zoo! We are from FL but we visited this zoo during a special Wild Lights event. It was amazing! Such a fun experience with lots to see. My kids really enjoyed it and they had great interactive stops along the way that kept the kids thrilled. I would love to come see this incredible place during the day too! It really is amazing. Be sure you see the snow leopard! It has a fun tunnel it likes to walk through that goes over the sidewalk!
