On March 23, 1864, Admiral Pierre de la Grandier, commander of French forces in Cochinchina, commissioned the building of a botanical and zoological gardens in Saigon.
The Saigon zoo has underdone many changeover the years. However, the general layout has largely remained the same. In 1927, a bridge across Thi Nghe channel was built to link the zoo with Phu My. In 1956 the Saigon government renamed the zoo Thao Cam Vien. The zoo is over 150 years old, has over 2500 trees belonging to 360 different species and is home to more than 1000 animals.
