Overton Park houses the popular 70-acre Memphis Zoo, which includes a 9-acre Cat Country and Primate Canyon. In total, there are about 3,500 animals here, representing over 500 species. Don't miss giant pandas Ya Ya and Le Le. The Northwest Passage features polar bears, seals, and sea lions. The zoo has some nice eateries, shops, fountains and a farm discovery center.

Wonderful afternoon outing for all ages. The pandas on loan from China are not as exciting as I thought, but still cool to see. My favorite was the penguins. Most of the zoo has been recently renovated. This is one of the best zoos that I have been to. It is located in Midtown. Must do if you have children.
