“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. There are more than 2,000 USDA licensed wildlife exhibitors in the US but less than 10% of them have been accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Hogle Zoo is one of that 10%, which means that it is recognized as being one of the best zoos in the world. Hogle Zoo is also a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA).
We had lots of fun! I was surprised at the amount of larger animals this zoo had for the size. We went early in the morning on a Saturday and it didn’t feel too crowded. However, if you have never traveled to Utah, be ready for large family groups with many small children.
I've seen better, but it's a pretty good zoo.
