Visiting Louisville Zoo

Louisville is a city filled with art, culture, and soul. It is a place where Bourbon is the tipple of choice and great dining destinations abound. but it is also home to some great family entertainment destinations – and one of the most popular is the Louisville Zoo.

The Louisville Zoo is the official state zoo of Kentucky – and visiting this incredible collection of flora and fauna from across the globe – and experiencing some of the interactive attractions makes it easy to understand why it has received this accolade.

Here visitors can view over 1,100 animals while wandering the 130-acre attraction. There are numerous exhibitions focusing on different habitats across the globe, such as the Australian Outback, Africa, Islands, and Central and South America, as well as the Arctic. Each of the exhibits has been designed to mimic natural habitats – and this encourages animals to showcase behaviors that are as close to natural as possible. Two highlights for any visitor are the ‘Gorilla Forest’ and ‘Glacier Run’ exhibitions – which have been internationally recognized for their excelence.

For the younger members of the family (and, in fact, anyone with an interest in the natural world) the daily training sessions are a highlight of any visit. During these interactive sessions, visitors can meet trainers and zoo personnel who will introduce many of the animal stars of the zoo experience to the audience – and answer questions about their habits and where they fit into the wonderful web of life that spreads cross the Earth, as well as the conservation efforts that are aimed at protecting them and their habitats.

However, the wonder does not end with the animals – there is also an incredible botanical garden that is simply a joy to visit. There are also other attractions such as rides (Splash Park, the Conservation Carousel and the ‘Zoo adventure ropes courses’ are all extremely popular). Visitors can also enjoy camel rides and for the younger members of the family the petting zoo experience is always a highlight of any visit.

Refreshments are readily available from a variety of concession stands across the zoo – and the gift shop is well worth a visit for those who want to take home a momento of the time that they have spent at this wonderful family orientated attraction.

If you are looking for a venue that offers that perfect combination of fun, excitement, and education then look no further than the Louisville Zoo – it’s well worth a visit.
