The Zoo was such a treat! and the fact that it has an Aquarium included? Great! it was a warmer weekend so the kids were able to walk around ok. They looved looking at the Lion and the Tiger. The elephants were also a treat.

There is always something new to see at the zoo. There are plenty of places to stop and take a break plus areas for the kids to play too such as playgrounds and giant sand areas. Great place to spend the day!

This is a beautiful zoo. It was perfect for us to take our 2 year old and stroller through. It is pretty hilly, but it is Pittsburgh so that's to be expected. But the lay out is nice and there is a lot of shade...More

It's $13 for adults and $12 for kids during the winter. I don't think they have any deals until you have a group larger than 10 going. Also last time I went I took my giant eagle card and got a discount!
