This weather is going to be great this weekend with highs in the mid to upper 70's, so it's the perfect time to wander around the El Paso Zoo. There have been some changes in pricing that you need to know about, but believe me, the Zoo is worth the price of admission!

There are a lot of amazing features to the Zoo like the Foster Tree House Playground, African Star train, the Hunt Family Desert Spring water feature and Giraffe Encounters. One of the best features is the Meerkat exhibit. There is a large enclosure that lets you get up close and personal with the meerkats and their babies. And don't forget to check out the aquarium room for some underwater fun!
