If you plan to visit, be sure to plan the whole day here. The place has so much to see. I was so impressed with the habitats. The orangatans and tigers were especially stunning. You can tell that the animals are well loved and cared for. We were able to get up close to so many exhibits. The flamingos were... More

It's a great place to visit. I have been plenty of times. I would recommend bringing some drinks & snacks especially if you have children. It is a very big zoo so dress comfortable and wear sneakers. Lots of shade &places to stop if you need a break. Love this zoo and will go again and again. ♡♡♡

I love going to the zoo and have been to several different zoos. Fort Worth is one of the best. The animal habitats are pretty amazing and the variety of animals is top notch. I went yesterday and there were so many babies, which means they are actively breeding, an important measure for some of the endangered species in our... More

Everything is so clean. Guests are also very polite as well as the zoo staff. Prices on food and drinks are average. They have a great wide exhibit on the animals. My son loves coming here.

We have two boys 11 and 5 and they both loved it!! It has great exhibits especially the gorillas. Lots of shaded walk ways and mist machines. We were sad the not all of the food venues were open. We walked the whole park in about three hours skipping just a few things. The train is the best way to... More

This is the best zoo by far in the state of Texas! It is so big that you can easily spend 4-5 hours walking around. An added bonus is that they installed a huge splash/water park which is tons of fun!

Having been born in Texas, keeping residence in Fort Worth & Waxahachie, both with historic roots, it is difficult to be objectively critical of any of the sites of my heritage. However, despite the many great exhibits of this zoo, the continued efforts to improve the setting including more shading & benches for visitors, along with the obvious commitment of... More
