We go to this zoo every year without fail. The habitats themselves are really an eye full. Seeing the animals in their habitats is amazing. We love the white bengal tiger. The Texas portion of this zoo is worth the trip.

This is a wonderful zoo! We seem to spend most of our time watching and laughing at the Meerkats and interacting with the birds. Take time to go through Raptor Canyon and look for the eagles on your way to Parrot Paradise. A few seed sticks for the kids to feed the birds, it never fails to please. The zoo is laid out nicely and you will be glad for the "mist stations" and shady areas.
My husband and daughter especially enjoy the herpetarium, but I must confess- the old building got me feeling quite claustrophobic. I cannot wait to see the new "Museum of Living Art" that opened recently ... even I might enjoy checking out things that slither this year!

We enjoy this zoo very much. There is something for everyone, in fact last year we bought a membership, which saves you a lot if you go often. They recently added MOLA, which is a living art museum, where the keep the reptiles. There are restraunts, but we enjoy packing a pinic lunch. There is also a train which you can ride back and forth, my 3 year old loves this.It is very clean and family friendly. I highly recommend it.

I grew up visiting the Ft. Worth Zoo and it is still fun today and I am 48 now! My daughter was raised visiting here as well. I must say as a toddler she enjoyed the kiddie car rides the most!

The exhibits are wonderful and the place is kept clean. Make sure to wear tennis shoes and take your camera.

Love, love, love this zoo! Our favorite is the gorillas! We had lot's of laughs watching them. Would def. go there again if in the area.

We went on homeschool day, which had a very good discount. The best part was that there was not a lot of public school kids running around that you would normally see during a day trip. Also they had extra zookeepers around talking about the animals and answering questions about them. Overall the Fort Worth Zoo is great to see anytime of the year but this day is especially nice for homeschoolers.

our favorite zoo of all time, this zoo gives us new things each time, the Texas wild life was a fun part to see, along with the new lizard showings, and it has plenty to do, the petting zoo, the rides, the food, the birds, and fish, and a host of animals, it is worth it to visit and see. The best zoo yet. There is plenty for children to learn and do. well worth getting passes and going for all the different events they hold.
