We have been going every year since our children have been born. We really enjoy seeing the animals. The zoo has beautiful habitats.

We have always like the Gladys Porter Zoo and are family are members. It is small, which is one of the nice things about it because it is not an exhausting hike with no animals but rather a short stroll with plenty of animals to see. It seems a bit cramped but we know the animals are well cared for.

I am not a big fan of zoos, but Gladys Porter is really a wonderful place to spend the mornings. It is almost too hot during the summer months to go in the afternoons.
