Wednesdays are half price day but normal tickets aren't bad. They have fun exhibits and beautiful animals but there's no one to ask questions to. I needed to visit for class and ask questions about a specific primate to put in a research paper. I was told I could email to the website and expect a response in 6-8 weeks.... More

The Fort Worth Zoo is a must to visit. The exhibits are amazing and the layout is perfect and manageable for all ages. They do a great job of providing special exhibits on a regular basis so there is always something new to see. It is a great experience.

This is a favorite for our grandkids. It is really pretty in the fall when the leaves are changing and it's not so hot. The spring is very nice too and there are many baby animals being born at that time and the animals are not hiding in the shade because of the heat. The natural settings for the animals... More

During my trip to the area a friend and I wanted to see what there was to offer here. Nothing about this zoo stood out. Two things I enjoyed most was feeding the birds and petting and brushing a goat. Was disappointed when the otters weren't out to see. Compared to other zoos I didn't feel anything set it apart...

I went to this zoo over the weekend, Sunday 1/1/2017, and was sorely disappointed. Both the white tiger (the only one at this zoo) was mal-nourished, he was not an old tiger yet his bones were sticking out on top of back spine as well as ribs, and the only male lion was also in poor condition. The rest of... More

We really enjoyed this zoo and the variety of animals! Most of the food stops were closed out of season, but the shops and restaurants that were open worked just fine. The zoo was clean and cared for, and the employees stationed at certain exhibits were friendly and informative. We arrived at open and it wasn't too crowded, which was... More

I feel very lucky to have this zoo on my area! The zoo is beautiful with lots of native food and trees between the different areas. The exhibits are diverse, and the staff is very knowledge.

I grew up going to this zoo, and it has changed so much. We picked a great day to visit again, just cool enough to have many animals out and active, but warm enough to not need to bundle up. The zoo is not too big, so we saw just about everything without having to rush. Will have to go... More
