And ten consecutive years setting new attendance records.
I don't have the newer figure (2018 and 2019), but you can tell something is going on.
Just do some googling and you will see what I'm talking about.
Basically, they've been doing continuous improvements to the place that make the zoo more attractive; it's no longer just a zoo in the old-time sense.
Other factors probably helped: the metro line along with the revival of downtown, midtown and uptown.
You have the football stadium (NRG), the baseball stadium (Minute Maid), the soccer stadium (BBVA), and the basketball arena (Toyota Center); all can be reached from the main line.
The Hermann park on the side with the Miller outdoor theater, the botanical garden, the museum district, and the theater district (uptown); all of that add up to an easy-to-access package.
Out-of-town visitors can easily make downtown Houston a complete long weekend without even needing a car.

The Houston zoo steadily advances to a real quality arena. Lots of thought and volunteer hours have really resulted in a fun and educational venue. Good place to visit if you are in Houston with kids,

It was great seeing my grand child enjoy the animals. The elephant expierence was great. You can bring in your own food to help with the total expense

On a nice sunny weekday, we took our 3 year old grand daughter. She had some much fun running around (Elephants was her favourite). After some 3+ hours we were tired, but she was still going. This is a great place to take kids, but be fore warned. If you are gramps, you may not be able to keep up with them!!!

Whilst some might be unhappy that animals are kept in a zoo, at least this one is well maintained and the staff clearly care for the animals in it and do their best for them.
