You'll need to travel to the south side of the city to get to Zoo Atlanta. The zoo is designed as a series of naturalistic habitats based on different parts of the world. The Kid Zone offers a playground, a petting zoo, and more intimate exhibits for youngsters to enjoy. Be sure to schedule your visit when the giant pandas are on view to say hello to Mei Lan, who was born at the zoo in September 2006.
- The grounds are somewhat hilly, so renting a push cart for the children may make things easier.
- Park on the Cherokee Avenue side. The larger parking lot on the Boulevard side has a big hill to walk up when you're going home.
