Had a dinosaur exhibition at the timewhich was fascinating. The animals are a bit sparse--I've been to better zoos but the grounds are manageable and not crowded

One of the elephants has been there for 64 years! She does not have nearly enough room - not by a long shot! Neither does she have sanitary or safe conditions. She only has concrete on which to walk, which damages her feet. And, during the winter, in which temperatures commonly drop below freezing, the only way she can seek... More

Tulsa Zoo has been rated as one of the top zoo in America for it in relationship to the size of city. It has had great community involvement and offers a lot for family. My grandson has gone twice in the last two days. It is always making improvement and adding new exhibits. If your are in Tulsa it is... More

Tulsa's Zoo is a beautiful place. You can easily spend a whole day moving about to admire the landscape, the animals, and all that the zoo offers. It was recently voted America's best zoo and while I'm not sure if it is, it certainly is the best I've see (I've been to 9 around the world).

But I guess OKlahoma weather isn't great for them anyway. I've been coming here since I was a baby and was thrilled to be able to bring my little one to it. This has always been a great zoo but I LOVE the new updates and additions such as several COLD buildings to escape the heat from. They always have... More

My friend and I try to visit zoos in the cities we visit. We had a nice time but I wouldn't go back. It was VERY busy on the day we visited and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

This is a medium-sized zoo, easy to navigate. It is child friendly with a large picnic area and playground. The animals are well-kept and appear healthy. I was a little disappointed in the number of animals. It seemed lacking compared to most zoos, but that won't keep me from visiting again.

This was an average zoo but my son enjoyed it. The best part was watching the Sea Lion show and the elephants.
