This is a great zoo. A lot of different exotic animals and plenty for little ones to do and interact with the animals. There is also a small water park for the kids during hot days. This zoo is incredibly clean.

First time here. This zoo is a lot bigger than I was expecting. A nice surprise. There is a little bit of everything. We went on a Saturday but it was not that crowded - amazing what a few clouds in the sky can do to turn out. I was not blown away by any one exhibit but each is... More

The zoo is very well laid out and easy to traverse. Not many Hills so strollers and such easily navigate the terrain. The exhibits are all well maintained and very nice. One thing that was lacking was zoo staff near exhibits to ask questions. Only a few really had that. The price is reasonable for a zoo and the food... More

Very pleasant day at the zoo. Great price, really cool exhibits. The kids went wild for the innovative bird area. You can buy a "seed stick" and feed the birds. Hold the stick out and they will perch on it and eat the seeds. So cool.

Great zoo! You can bring your own lunch and eat along the path. Nice shaded areas, or buy lunch there. I rented a motorized chair for $30. Love it!! I really enjoyed myself. I would recommend taking a few minutes to look at the map. I couldn't figure out how to see the big cats up close. I did see... More

This is our favorite zoo. It is easy to get around even for those with physical challenges. The animals are well cared for and they have terrific educational camps. If you can only see one zoo in Texas, this needs to be the one.

Love this zoo! Half price Wednesday but very crowded! I suggest going on a day kids are in school and it is not hot.

We had a great time at the Fort Worth Zoo. The staff there is amazing and helpful in all areas. The grounds are immaculate and the animal enclosures are so natural. If you need a little peace and quiet, find the covered picnic area near the Zoo Creek Cafe. It is a slice of heaven and only a few families... More
