It is a nice place to take kiddos for a couple hours. Definitely not an entire day activity but they are always updating and adding things throughout the years. I love taking my nieces and nephews for afternoon fun.

We have been to The Texas Zoo many times and always bring visitors here. It is on the small side but this is one of the things we like about it. You can get up close with many of the animals and the animals seem to be much more active than at large, crowded zoos. There are peacocks wandering freely... More

This zoo is small but worth the afternoon, took my 6 year old grandson and he really enjoyed the day.

This is a small but very intimate little zoo. The exhibits are well maintained and the animals look to be well treated. It concentrates on local Texas wildlife with a few big cats and primates. My son commented to me that this was his favorite zoo. I enjoyed it as well and so will most families with children. Because of... More

For a small zoo, it makes for a pleasant visit. Its small size allows for a more personal experience and the free ranging fowl are a site to see.

The kids had a fun time seeing the animals, especially the reptiles. But the staff could have been more friendly. A couple of ladies leading a summer camp were more fun to learn from than the staff at the Zoo, especially the train conductor who was noticeably grumpy to be taken from his lunch when the train was scheduled to...

If you are expecting a big zoo like in Ft. Worth or San Antonio, then you will be disappointed. It is a great zoo for its size. At the time of our visit, the animals seemed well cared for and exhibits were kept clean. The gift shop was on the smaller size but had plenty to tempt kids out of... More

We loved the zoo, it's smaller and doesn't take all day to get through like some of the large city zoos. Because of it's size, you are able to get a little closer to the animals and don't have to fight the crowds. It was perfect for our 2 and 3yo kids, they loved the exhibits and the peacocks walking...
