Monkey Hill

Monkey Hill

**Monkey Hill and the adjoining waterfall area are temporarily closed for repairs. Kids have been rolling down Monkey Hill for generations, and now Monkey Hill will have an updated slope just perfect for rolling! Opening December 2013.

Monkey Hill was originally constructed by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s. The intent, legend has it, was to show the children of New Orleans what a hill looks like.

Now, Monkey hill features a five-level treehouse to give visitors a monkey-eye view from the legendary tallest point in New Orleans. There is also a rope bridge, bronze lion sculptures, wading pools and plenty of "room to roll" down Monkey Hill which has been a highlight of a Zoo visit for generations.
