Fodor's Review

You'll never confuse this with the San Diego Zoo, but this 42-acre zoo nestled at the base of Emigration Canyon has been a delightful half-day destination for families since 1931. Asian Highlands showcases big cats in natural surroundings; Rocky Shores includes underwater viewing of its polar bears, sea lions, seals, and otters; and Elephant Encounter has elephants and white rhinos in a simulated African plain. In between you'll find many exhibits with species native to the West, including wolves and bison. A children's zoo, interactive exhibits, and special presentations make visits informative and engaging for both adults and children. Just for fun is the Lighthouse Point Splash Zone, with a tube slide and lots of wet play opportunities, the Zoo Train, and a carousel.
