The Dallas Zoo is sad to visit for adults but children will love it.
The employees are trying, the animals look healthy but the architecture and infrastructure are badly outdated and obviously minimally maintained.
There are several new attractions being built but some of the old ones are rusty, peeling paint and cracking their concrete.
If you can ignore the decay the zoo is a great place to spend the day and picnic. The Dart rail station is right across from the zoo making it easy to get there without having to drive and two days a week your ticket will get you 50% off.
The zoo badly needs your money to keep going. Its' only hope is if the county takes over from the city but that seems unlikely.
So go to the zoo often so that we have a local zoo to go to.
