The Fort Worth Zoo has long been a favorite destination for my family. It has a wide variety of exhibits, a local Texas area with fun things for the children, and beautifully landscaped grounds with lots of shade for those hot Texas afternoons.

The Fort Worth Zoo is the nicest zoo I've ever visited. This is not an "animals in cages" kind of place. The animals are contained in "habitats" that are really nice. The zoo is well laid out and everything is well kept.

Scooters are limited and cannot be reserved. They are $30 for the whole day rental (there is no mention of this as a deposit...so must be a fee) They are located just inside the Zoo's front gate. A valid ID is... More
