About Cincinnati Zoo And Botanical Garden, Cincinnati

This beautiful zoo is the second oldest zoo and gardens in the US and the Reptile Building of this place is considered to be the oldest in the whole of the country. It was built in the year 1875 which was even before the whole campus was set up properly. It has at present become the most popular tourist attraction in the city.

Many years ago, the local people as well as the government came up to one decision that a place to protect and breed animals was needed immediately and so was built this huge zoo and gardens in the heart of the city. It was initially only for domestic animals like cows. Later on the whole project was expanded and gorgeous wild animals were added to the zoo. Among the animals that are breed here are California Sea Lions, Cheetahs, Sumatran Rhinoceros, Malayan tigers, lowland gorillas, pottos, Masai Giraffes, etc. the zoo has also set new records by conserving the oldest alligator as well as one of the oldest lions in the whole world.

Apart from the zoo they also have a lovely botanical garden where there is a fantastic collection of herbal plants and colorful small flowers. This is just a perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening is immense peace amidst lush greenery. The cool breeze from the many trees and the shade of them makes everything very soothing for the mind and body. Apart from that, the National Heritage of the state is up for a lot more development and efforts are on in full swing to make it one of the best zoos of the world.

  • Best Zoo in the *USA. It has a Cheetah run . African area. Giraffe habitat. They have rare Bengal tigers. They have alot of endangered animals. They have renowned reproduction program. It is also a Beautiful botanical garden. Spring tulips are gorgeous and summer annuals are abundant. They have a Holiday Festival of Lights that is fun for kids and parents and date night, too

  • Beautiful zoo with a lot to see!! Fun for all ages! The nursing room available near the middle of the park for new moms was one of the best I have ever seen. Great place for my little one and I to be comfy and have privacy. The covered parking was fantastic while getting kiddos in/out of the vehicles.

  • I use to love the zoo. I've been a member for years. I love the Africa exhibit. It is beautiful and easily navigated, and the animals are typically out. So many of the other exhibits seem to have gone down hill the last few years. Every time we go... even during peak season... There are so many animals that are not in their exhibits. They could learn a lesson from the Columbus Ohio zoo.

  • I went to the zoo with my 2 kids on a school trip. This was a great place to take my kids. Lots of information about the animals and even the plants around the zoo. It was still cool and a little rainy but a lot of the animals were out and visible. That meant a lot to get to see the animals. If you go you have got to check out the insect and reptiles houses. They were great!

  • Overall this was a pretty good zoo they had a good variety of animals.I recommend going on a day that’s not cold. Also this zoo had great interactions and we got to get very close greater flamingos.GREAT! Also we got to see the baby hippo so cute! Some downsides were a lot of exhibits were under construction . Also the white tiger which my kids were looking forward to. Btw it’s on loan to another zoo. Also I would not recommend going on jungle trails hardly any animals out all signs said animals were gone for some time.Jungle trail BEWARE! Also don’t do the giraffe feeding very overpriced . But overall great zoo
