My daughter was in from Minnesota and we wanted to do something outdoors. There were 6 of us all adults, We enjoyed the fresh air, natural environment , cleanliness, and animals. The only thing that marred it was the fact that there were weddings on the great stairs.

The way the zoo is laid out is just wonderful. Something to see at every turn.The kids especially loved the snake house and the penguins.The train at the end back pout the icing on the cake.

We always get a zoo membership because we live here and it's fun and easy to just pop in for an hour or so whenever we have free time. Having a membership gives you free parking, reduced prices on...

I visited the Fort Worth Zoo with my 8 years old daughter and nephew. They had a blast. It's a great and fun place, full of all kind of activities for them. The water park area is awesome.

They have most everything except a Panda Bear. Which I've only seen in San Diego. The train is also a nice ride right outside the zoo. They have 1/2 price day on Wednesdays. Great family entertainment highly recommend.

(DON'T go on spring break!! CROWDED!) lots of fun animals and babies. You get pretty close to them too. They have a water... More

As far as I'm concerned the Fort Worth Zoo is the best Zoo in Texas and the US! Hands down!!!!!! All the habitats are excellent. There isn't a bad viewing spot at any of the animal exhibits.

Very informative about the animals with helpful guides. Lots of shady resting spots for visitors. Food and drink options available and of course the gift shop.

The weather was fantastic! We were grateful for the souvenir shop right at the gate. We forgot SUNSCREEN. MY husband wished there was a smoking area at the back of the Zoo. Our guest is enthralled with Penguins, she was glad she got to see them. Enjoyed the misters through out the park and the spray at Texas town. We... More
