I love this wonderful Zoo. It is clean, friendly staff, gorgeous animals. We loved the lively Flamingos as well as the Giraffes. It's a great place to visit and get some wonderful photos.

Como Park Zoo is in St. Paul, MN. We love visiting this zoo. The gorillas are fun and the giraffes and ostriches are among our favorites. The Como conservatory is gorgeous, especially as an escape from winter.
