My family had such a good time today at the zoo. Wednesday's are half price so it is a great time to experience the animals. Parking is $5 but it wasn't a hike to the entrance like some other places. Great interaction for the kiddos and the scenery is beautiful. I couldn't believe how well the landscaping was done. The... More

Supposed to be one of the top 5 zoos in the nation, so I thought I'd stop by and check it out. It is a neat place. It is half price on Wednesday and we had no problems getting in or with crowds. The Kona Ice snow cone machine was nice to have in there and the kids liked making... More

This zoo was wonderful. We came specifically to see the primates and it was great. You're able to see them outside as well as inside behind the glass. My son loved seeing the orangutan swinging and climbing around. The elephants were very active and most animals were out to be seen. They have plenty of places to eat inside the... More

If you are visiting Fort Worth you must see the Fort Worth Zoo. Lots to see and the animal habitats are incredible. It may not have as many animals as the Dallas Zoo but I felt like the habitats were cooler.

We had 3 adults and 7 kids ranging in ages from 3 months to 18 years old. All enjoyed the various animals here. It isn't massive and we walked the entire zoo in about 3-4 hours. There was a train that you can ride for a small fee to cut down on some of the walking but there was a... More

Get there when it opens and animals are active. Plenty to do and see, long walks too to wear out the kids. This zoo is always great, although it can get crowded on weekends and holidays.

This zoo isn't as enormous as the San Diego zoo, but it's still an all day event. Put on your walking shoes and prepare to burn off that expensive unhealthy zoo restaurant food. :) This place never gets old, our son is 3 as of writing this, and we will definitely take him back every year. You have to pay... More

The facility was well maintained and enjoyable! We took a picnic and there was a nice place with tables and shade. The selection of animals was fascinating and the information easy to find and read. I will certainly go back!! A GREAT day!
