Monkey Hill

Monkey Hill

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.
