“Tulsa Zoo”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We always enjoy our visits to the zoo. The zoo has been busy constantly adding new exhibits or doing major renovations. Also a relatively good deal at only $8 for adults. Even now that my girls are teenagers we try to get to the zoo at least a couple times a year. The baby jaguars that were born last year are adorable although are getting big now. The two new grizzly bears are impressive. The Rainforest cafe is a nice spot for lunch midway through your visit.

“Fun Filled Day”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Tulsa Zoo is large and it's easy to see everything. I would suggest you bring your lunch and a stroller for young children. The zoo has cafes around the grounds, but it is a little pricey for what you get.

“Good day out!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Took my daughter here for a mommy/daughter day, she had fun petting and feeding the animals. It was super hot being August, so we didn't get to see everything, this place is huge! It's a good family fun place, and entry fee is very reasonable. Will go back, on a cooler day next time!

“Very nice family outing”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

A trip to the Tulsa Zoo is a wonderful family outing. The entrance fee is reasonable, and parking is free. Inside, there is a train one can ride around the zoo (tickets extra). There is also a beautiful old fashioned style carousel for the kids to ride (tickets extra). My grand-daughters just love the carousel! The zoo is clean and well maintained. Walkways are wide. The grounds are beautifully kept. There are plenty of shade trees and picnic tables, along with a playground for the children. Food can be purchased in several locations, but families can also bring picnic items into the park. A pond attracts wild water birds. The rainforest building is a favorite for my grandchildren, while I'm partial to the big cats! A nice gift shop has a variety of merchandise, if you want a memento of your visit.
