I am from Houston, TX and heard about this awesome place and just had to visit. The Cool Zoo is an attraction within the Audubon Zoo. The staff was excellent and it was very kid-friendly for children of all ages. My nephew had a blast!

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
