Oklahoma City zoo is great and has a large, easy to navigate layout. The new elephant section is worth seeing and they have plans to expand even more. One of the best zoos I've been to.

Tons of animals and my son absolutely loved it! The elephants were his favorite! He was a very happy boy.

I've been to more than 20 zoos and this one is not one of the best. The diversity of exhibits is good and there are some unique exhibits, but overall some of the facility need work. We had a pleasant day and having the Science Museum next door made it a great day to visit two attractions. I recommend this... More

Family if 2 adults and 3 children aged from 3 to 9. The zoo provided a great afternoons entertainment and the admission was good value at $8 per adult $5 for children. There are additional features that will cost extra such as train rides and animal feeding. Down side, sting Ray pool closing an hour earlier than the park gates... More

All the way back to my childhood I to our own kids, this is a jewel. I can't elaborate enough on how wonderful a place this is and it and Lincoln park have grown into a world class zoo, museum and other feature-filled area. We used to picnic around the lake. So much fun and memories!

The OKC zoo has come a long way since I moved here in the 80's. The improvement in the natural settings for the animals is refreshing. While visiting you can't help but notice that the animals seem more relaxed and content in their spaces. Spend the day at this zoo, have lunch there, walk through the pathways to the different...

The OKC zoo is a great family adventure! You can walk or ride their safaris tram. Every animal you hope to see is there. There's a reptile house with a bench outside in the shade where I happily sat and waited for the family. The animals are visible in settings like their natural habitat. Plan to spend the day. Bring... More

Spent three hours for our first visit ever and was definitely impressed. The variety of animals was impressive and the facilities first rate. A tram is available within the park and a small train as well. Really impressive was an indoor aviary where birds were free to fly around.

OKC's zoo is not San Diego. It's not even Dallas. But that said, it provides a good value and some charm, especially for kids. The giraffe enclosure is huge and offers a chance to see the scale of these animals. The elephant exhibit is really special, though a pretty good hike from the entrance. And while the apes and lions... More

I always enjoy visiting this zoo! Sometimes they even have free admission (for example, for Moms and Dads on Mother's Day and Father's Day). The zoo is also in a great location in the Adventure District near a science museum. It's a fun place for families.
