This is a great zoo and my daughter loved visiting there when we lived in DFW. During the spring and fall we went at least once a month. Also if you live there it's definitely worth buying the membership. The free parking and admission pay for themselves if you go a few times.

Very updated and relevant to today's conservation issues. Many different bird species that are not found at my home zoo.

Even though it was chilly, we were surprised to be able to see all the animals. Great place to spend the day with your family.

What a great day to visit the Fort Worth Zoo. The weather was cool, but comfortable (upper 50's). However, that was apparently exactly what the zoo animals needed to be outdoors today. We passed very few exhibits that did not have a sight to see! Loved seeing the newest little Giraffe checking us out and even running a little bit!... More

We went in the afternoon and it was $12 for adults which seems high to me. A lot of things are shut down. The petting zoo was pretty lame. If you are going to charge full price then I expect things to be open. I would wait til spring if you are going maybe everything will be open.

Fort Worth Zoo has THE best exhibits, including the fairly new reptile house! Not to mention the chance to view animals in a natural habitat very similar to their own. The primates can be quite entertaining and the big cats are always a favorite of mine!

The Fort Worth Zoo is a world class center. The zoo is well maintained. The exhibits are as good if not better than others in the country. A great family outing any time of the year!!

The Fort Worth Zoo deserves its reputation as one of the finest zoos in the country. A wide variety of mammals is housed in open enclosures that are designed to mimic the mammals' natural habitats. The paths through most of the zoo are well shaded; walkways are broad with ample wheelchair and stroller access.

This zoo is layed out well, with plenty to see for every age of person. Clean, innovative and educational, the people of Fort Worth have supported and made this place a must-see attraction in Cowtown. The monkey exhibit is so awesome- could stay there for days!
