This zoo is making improvements and it a fun place to visit with the family. Though not as impressive as the big town's like SanFran or OKC..

We had a wonderful day!! They have lots of different animals stretched across a huge area that you walk through. They have inside exhibits that are air conditioned to give you a break from the heat. Definitely bring your camera and walking shoes!! The park is very clean and kept up. Before we left, we visited the gift shop and... More

Where are all the animals? We walked and walked and ended up spending more time at the park in the middle of the zoo than seeing animals. The train is great to see the entire park and the carousel entertained our 4 year old (but having to pay for each ride is a bit much). Our favorite exhibit was the... More

Go when it is cool because it is mostly outdoors but there are some nice cool places t hide from the heat and the sun! The food was overpriced and not good because they don't have very many choices and they need a healthier menu for the summer and year round. Chili and Nachos are too hot in the summer.

Fun, easy place to visit and well laid out park. The animals are diverse and exhibits have a lot of information about the animals and their natural habitat. Great efforts are made to respect the animals even if it means having them off display if they need sleep, food or other.

A way better zoo than i expected it to be,very easy to maneuver your way through and i enjoy the way the animals are kept in a natural type habitat,the exhibit reps are always willing to explain things about the animals,if asked they will normally bring the big colorful parrots out so that the visitors can get a more one...

We have been to several zoos and as far as zoos go, Tulsa zoo is just a zoo. We purchased the wrist band that gave us unlimited train and carousel rides, which was a plus. The jaguar exhibit, while small, was great (it's part of the American rainforest). Many photo ops and a playground where parents can rest while children... More

It was so much fun, even with the heat being near 100 degrees. the animals were still out, the rides were still running, and there were plenty of buildings to cool off in. My 3 year old had so much fun feeding the fish and turtles. We can't wait until the next time we can come up again.
