“The Tulsa Zoo is a Fun Place for the Fam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

So many exhibits and things to see. We are going to take our 2 year old there this summer. It was our oldest boy's first zoo to see and I remember how excited he was years ago. Lots of animals and info! You won't be disappointed.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

I have only lived in Tulsa for a few months but have already been to the zoo 3 times. The grounds are beautiful and they have a wide variety of animals. I also really appreciate the fact that you can bring in your own food. I usually pack a sack lunch and buy some ice cream there. There is also a large play area for kids. We spend about half of our time looking at the animals and my grandson spends a couple of hours on the play equipment. We bought a family membership the end of March and it has paid for itself already.

“A fun family activity...but too many closed exhibits”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Our family enjoyed our recent trip to the Tulsa Zoo. The zoo is clean and well kept and of course, family friendly. My children, ages 1-13, enjoyed the sea lions exhibit (we got to watch the trainers work with the sea lions and the exhibit is set up for excellent viewing), the petting zoo, and the rain forest which included hundreds of tiny frogs. We were disappointed however, because several exhibits and actually several buildings were closed. The signs indicated remodeling so I am thinking they may be closed for a while. The last time we visited was about 3 years ago, and several exhibits (different ones) were closed also. I would suggest calling to find out about closed exhibits before making plans to visit.

Wonderful zoo! Spread out and a lot to see! Had a great trip with the family! The zoo food left a little to be desired, but other than that we had a great time!
