I love the Fort Worth Zoo. There is a ton to see and everytime I've gone the animals are always up and about. I think because I like to go in the morning before it gets too hot for them. But all the animals have water, even though you might not see it from where you are. My favorite part... More

Wonderful place to walk around see the animals. Outstanding reptile house! Love to feed the fish and watch the giraffes.

We had a wonderful day at the zoo. We've been to many zoos over the years but we especially enjoyed all the babies here. We sat & watched the baby giraffes for quite a while. We were disappointed in the train though. We've done them at other zoos & they are more of a scenic tour of the zoo. This... More

We have been coming to the Fort Worth Zoo for many years. It has changed considerably over the years, but always seems to be moving in the right direction. Our young daughter loves going, but even my wife and I enjoy our visits to the zoo. It is small enough to completely get through in a day, but big enough... More

Whats so impressive about this zoo is the lay out which gives lots shade and long walks that double back. The animals are protected from the sun and the place is pleasant and quite. I prefer this zoo over the Dallas Zoo. Just my opinion. Well worth the drive to Ft. Worth.

It was very hot. But my granddaughter enjoyed it very much. I think you need at least three hours. We only had under three hours and since she was little took longer so we couldn't see everything. IF we had played it the water park part we would have needed another hour. The misters were great. Probably would have tired... More

What a pleasant surprise! After reading some reviews saying the Zoo is small I'm glad it didn't influence my decision for taking my kids to it. It was large ,well shaded with equipped with occasional cooling mists. The animal exhibits were well maintained. The food choices were not so great so I suggest eating somewhere else. On the grounds, there... More

Was planning on just a couple of hours but turned out to be an all day event. We looked up and it was well into the afternoon. Absolutely enjoyed our visit.

Our family decided on a visit to the Fort Worth Zoo (in JULY). We did have an early start (it opens at 10AM) but it was tremendously hot within and hour! There are shaded areas, but the are also many exhibits in the long, relatively linear zoo that are beside blazing hot concrete (or asphalt) pathways . The Zoo did... More
