“one of Utah's most popular attractions”
Utah’s Hogle Zoo dates from 1931 and is located at the mouth of Emigration Canyon. The Zoo is one of the most visited attractions in Utah and the top paid-for tourist attraction in Salt Lake City. Its natural terrain covers 42 acres of tree-lined pathways where visitors can view over 800 animals. 2009 was a banner year for the Zoo featuring the first African elephant born at the Zoo on August 10, 2009 and the milestone of 1,000,000 visitors in one year was reached in December.
