The Fort Worth ZOO is awesome. Visited with our grandchildren ages 8 and 5 and their Parents. Did not give it the highest rating because the San Diego would receive five stars. The Fort Worth ZOO is the best in the area. Well laid out...More

Best zoo ever!!! The new African savanna is mesmerizing. It is a must visit place whenever you find yourself in Fort Worth. We are members, and will renew again, as we take our family members whenever they come for a visit.

I have visited this zoo for several years. It has been rated one of the top zoos in the nation. It has regions of Texas species and you can stop and visit the informational stations. Very fun to take your children of all ages.

Extremely large and well planned out. Be prepared to walk a short distance when you park and miles and miles once inside!

Quite spacious & reasonable sized animal enclosures, but I have seen better. Penguinarium was a little disappointing having seen the one at Loro Parque in Tenerife. Kids enjoyed feeding the giraffes which was nice. Surprised to see a 'Burger King' as main eatery....Really?
