We all know that zoos aren't "natural"; they don't offer animals an environment that truly mimics their habitat, but Fort Worth Zoo works hard to come close for many of the animals. The trek up the hill of the zoo offers a great variety of...More

This is a great zoo. Great location, well run, clean. If you live in Fort Worth just get a annual pass vice paying regular entry price. It is paid for after 2 visits.

Incredible animals horrible long narrow layout - L shaped. Wipes out kids by the end. Genius to have $2 train ride back but you have to go back and forth and its exhausting.

This zoo had clean, lush grounds. The animals were active and in a beautiful habitat. My kids LOVED feeding the giraffes--they got up so close with no line to wait in!

This zoo is well designed with a wide variety of mammals, birds, and reptiles. We especially enjoyed the Texas section with native animals. The aviary was beautiful and fun to be able to feed the birds.

So the Houston Zoo, my hometown, is nice but the Fort Worth Zoo takes the prize. My two grandkids, ages 3 and 4, walked for 4 1/2 hours and never once complained. We never even thought about getting a stroller or wagon for them. We...More
