If you are looking for a world-class zoo, it isn't in Tulsa. However, rather than no zoo, it does have some bright spots for local residents. When we were there, many cages/areas were empty, either due to animals being at other zoos, rehabilitation of facilities, or the like. We did enjoy the giraffes, the bird/butterfly area, and the little petting zoo. Though, if we didn't have a 2 year old, it wouldn't have been nearly as exciting. I would take the drive to Oklahoma City to get a much better experience.

We went the day after Thanksgiving, and the rest of Tulsa must have been shopping because we nearly had the fantastic place to ourselves. Our family has been to zoos from San Diego to Denver to St. Louis, and this zoo definitely belongs among them. A full roster of animals, new or renovated enclosures, and really clean and tidy. We look forward to visiting again!

The Tulsa Zoo is one of my family's favorite places to go. For the last several years, we have purchased a membership. This allows us to get in without an admission charge, receive free train and carousel rides and get discounts on food and other purchases. We absolutely love the staff, and many of the employees have watched our daughter grow up over the years. It is a very special place to go, and we do anything we can to help support them! HIGHLY recommend visiting. It's educational, entertaining and great exercise!

Some good parts but mostly just so-so. HalloZOOween and Christmas Lights are well done. Mostly just showing its age. Reactive instead of proactive.
