Even though the zoo is undergoing renovations for a new section opening in 2011, it is still a great way to spend an afternoon. My sons especially enjoy the "Alabama Barn" area where they get to pet farm animals and see them up close. Another favorite is watching the Sea Lions and the Reptile building. At the end of each trip to the zoo, we spend time at their playground or in the play area in the water fountain (in the summer). The zoo is definitely kid friendly, offers a lot of activities in addition to animal viewing, and the staff has always been helpful and friendly, even when we have a big group going.

We look forward to even more fun when the new Trails of Africa section opens in the spring of 2011.

Birmingham Zoo is a fun experience for both children and adults. The zoo has plenty of exhibits to keep you busy for most of the day. Anything that you buy inside of the zoo itself is overpriced. They have picnic tables and I would suggest packing a lunch and snacks. One VERY important piece of advice, though. Avoid this zoo AT ALL COSTS during the months of April and May. The zoo is slam packed with school field trips during those months. :)
