I felt the zoo was cramped into a very small space, many of the enclosures are very small with many if the animals displaying stress behaviour, they look in reasonable health but are quite clearly not in great mental health. A real case of less is more. Would not recommend anyone to visit if they are animal lovers

We have loved the Ft Worth zoo since first moving here 5 years ago. It entertains all ages. Our favorite thing about the zoo is that the animals are so close to you. You can get up so close to a lot of them. The amphibian hall is amazing. One day a week it's half priced admission. It is really... More

Affordable and easy to navigate. Went with another couple, no kids and enjoyed the exhibits. We went first thing in the morning and animals were active. Food service was reasonable in price and typical of an attraction like this.

Our Zoo has been in existence for more years than I can remember. I went as a child and it was always fascinating to me. Now, it is even more fascinating and exciting. The animals and sea life, well it has it all. Never miss the Fort Worth Zoo for it a place worth visiting.

Visited my son and his wife in Fort Worth with a couple of hours to kill before we headed to our company party. My son has annual passes to the zoo so we decided to spent a leisurely afternoon there. Now this does not compare to the large zoos like San Diego but for its size, there is a lot... More

Love this zoo! It's in a great location. Friendly people. Have military discount. Have 1/2 price ticket days on Wednesdays. Kids 2 & under are free. Lots of cool animals to see and learn about. Kids seem to love it no matter how many times we go.

Well designed for a safari like adventure with lots of great exhibits that provides a great educational experience. There are plenty of critters roaming in their natural settings to give you the feel of being there.

My first meeting with my wife's nephew and niece and their kids. We visited the zoo and had a blast. The animals are well taken care of. One of the best cleaned and maintained zoos I have ever visited.

Bring the family and enjoy the Fort Worth Zoo with the animals being kept in more natural surroundings. Spend the day, food available. A beautiful zoo
