Took my two daughters (5 and 10 months) to this zoo for the first time. Right away I could tell that the zoo really cared about their animals and the conservation of other animals. The animals weren't just money makers for the zoo keepers, but every keeper I saw handle or talk about the animals was so personable with them.... More

I have always loved the Ft Worth Zoo and they continue to make it better and better every time I visit. They are always improving on something. Even with the large crowds the ticket booth is able to handle it and get you your tickets quickly then it's off to the animals Never had a bad experience always top notch... More

I went with my son and his class, and we had a great time lots of new exhibits. Some of the things we like most were the fish and elephants, can't wait to go back.

This zoo delivers every time we come out. Zoo has great cafes in particular that near the reptile enclosure. Beautiful view of crocodile lagoon while enjoying a recharge. This is one of the few zoos that profile native Texan animals in a great nature walk format. Other beautiful enclosure highlights include the great apes. All around a wonderful place to... More

This is a lovely zoo. It's small enough that you can get through the whole place in 2.5 hours. Great selection of wild life and decent refreshment stands, buy pricey (of course). The vending machines were a bit of a roulette, though. Would like to see more of them operational. Definitely will skip the little Texas-themed section next time. The... More

I've lived in Dallas my whole life and had never been to the Fort Worth Zoo. I was definitely missing out. I loved the layout of the zoo and found most of the enclosures to be easily accessible for some great photos. Can't wait to go back!

Several years ago the Fort Worth Zoo moved away from animals in cages to animals in a more natural habitat. This helps see the animals more as they would in their home environment. The grounds are clean, the staff is friendly. Lots of food and beverage choices scattered through the park. I highly recommend this zoo.
