Help support the Louisiana Purchase Garden and Zoo! It's not what it used to be but is still nice and can be made awesome again. Loss of the Elephant, Giraffe and Penelope the Hippo as well as several other exhibits hurts the overall experience for anyone who was able to enjoy seeing them years ago. Hopefully new improvements will be made. The train is up and redone so it's a good ride to see some animals, the boat ride too. Go to the Zoo, have some fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed this zoo! The parrots and the monkeys were a hoot to watch! And the tiger went for a swim and looked like it wanted to come out and play! The boat ride was nice to get to see the animals a little better and took about 25 minutes.
