The park was clean, admission price was good, there was some remodeling but the staff was great and answered questions. even the areas that were being worked on we could still see the animals. Take the kids, enjoy the park, if your big like me look... More

Every time I visit I later wish I'd spring for the family membership or Explorer membership. Many complain about animals in zoos looking depressed, scraggly or poor conditions. I believe that Zoo's are like everything else, you get what you put into it. Give generously or spend generously if a great zoo is what you want. I believe for a... More

Two teens and myself throughly enjoyed our trip. It was pretty busy as it was spring break but I expected that to be the case with anything we planned to do. We enjoyed seeing several new exhibits that we hadn't seen last year. The renovations seem to be coming along nicely.

We love the zoo! It is always so neat and clean! The new rhino exhibit is really neat and will be awesome when they get the other African animals in the exhibit as well.

Enjoyed the amount of time I spent at the zoo. I just needed more time to explore the zoo. When it is closing time the animals have an I am done for the day attitude.

Everyone in Tulsa must have gone on the day we tried to go. Lines on the roads were long as well as inside. We had to turn around and go somewhere else. It was Spring Break though.

This zoo is clean, has great animal buildings and the zookeepers are awesome! They have fun events that revolve around the holidays and being a Zoo Friend saves you scads of money! What a way to drop everything at home and spend time in the beautiful out doors. There is also a nature center on site that you can visit.

This is a well organized zoo! The moment you walk in, you just follow the trail.... I didn't feel lost at all. I know it's silly but at some zoos I feel like I am back tracking to see most of the animals but this one is laid out so that the flow is not stressful. Great design. It was... More
