The New Orleans Zoo is pretty cool, but in the middle of the summer it is even cooler. Located within the zoo is what they call the Cool Zoo, which is an awesome little water park. In these hot Summer New Orleans days, an occasional splash in the water is very welcome.
The girls really enjoyed the lazy river and both started getting much more comfortable in the water.
There were many areas to get splashed or sprayed and even though it was a very busy day, there was plenty of room for the many kids to spread out and find their own areas to play.
There were also a few really fun slides and cascades of water to run through. All in all, the Cool Zoo was a blast for the girls and for us.
