It was a good idea to combine gardens with the zoo and recreation parks, that way you had everything 'under one roof' to say that. And the best part of the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is that the admission is free, though they highly appreciate donations (adults $2, kids $1).

There are kid friendly areas, apart from the zoo with a carousel and mini golf course. There is also a marketplace where you can buy souvenirs or snacks. Take your camera with you to immortalize the various statues and decorative artworks throughout the gardens.

1225 Estabrook Dr, St Paul, MN 55103, USA

Free, though donations highly appreciated.

Opening Hours:
10am-4pm daily (till 6pm in summer)
