The FW Zoo is well done. Lots of exhibits including birds, flamingos, snakes, elephants, monkeys, rhinoceros, and Texas wildlife. A beautiful day trip. Lots of families. Very crowded but still manageable. New construction sites abound so my guess is the FW Zoo is expanding. Parking is tight so be early. Prices are fair. Worthwhile for children. Food is meh. Bring...

I was so impressed at how well the exhibits and animal habitats were created and maintained. They look awesome! We spent several hours at the zoo. My husband and I had a great time here!

A beautiful zoo. If you go make sure to ride the train outside the zoo as well as inside. Lots of walking paths inside and out

This is one of the best zoos in the country. Rework about 5-7 years ago and it is a great place to take the family. Young kids and adults alike will find something that interest them.

Hundreds of different animals spotted on our visit. The kids could see most without being lifted and the walks between the exhibits were short and well shaded.

I love the FW Zoo! The best zoo I have ever visited! It is clean, everything is well-maintained, and always fun! Lots of places to eat/drink. Wednesday is half-price day (expect crowds!) Parking is $5.

We took our 3 grandkids to the Fort Worth Zoo as a day with grandma and they loved it. The animals were all attentive and ready to show off. The shops are great with many souvenir options. There are plenty of places to eat also. This time we brought picnic lunch. We will be returning again as we now have... More

OK so to be fair I have yet to visit the Dallas zoo but being new to the Dallas area everyone warned me that the FW zoo is the best of the two so I went with it and I must say I was not disappointed. We arrived right at opening time with no waiting lines and parking spaces upfront.... More

Many different animals. Shaded areas make the walk through various habitats pleasant. The train is big enough for adults and actually goes somewhere. We took the train to the far end through shaded habitats and strolled back through the animals. The habitats are varied and interesting to walk through. Food: Actually has good food. 1.
