We have been to many zoos. I like this one, a lot of animals you don't always get to see in zoos. Best Komodo dragon exhibit I have ever seen. Nice exhibits. Not very big, can get done in a couple of hours. Staff not so friendly, but since I wasn't there to see people, I didn't care. We would... More

I try and go to the Zoo at least once a year. Every year they add new animals and special features. It is a beautiful and relaxing place to visit.

Having been to many many zoos this was one of the smaller ones but at least you didn't have to walk for miles to see everything. Great for kids and older folks because everything is pretty close together.

One of the best Zoos in the united states. The Zoo has all the best animals,, wonderful train ride. The atmosphere is wonderful, the trees beautiful. You can ride a life animal. Its really good for little kids with the petting zoo. The cats are great. The money cages are large and they are everywhere.

I will admit it: I am a zoo freak. The Bronx Zoo, the St. Louis Zoo, the San Diego Zoo, Overton Park Zoo in Memphis, Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, The Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Disney's Animal Kingdom - you name then and chances are quite good that I have visited there. I always return home to our beloved... More

The Tulsa Zoo has gone through a big transformation the past few years and has improved many of the exhibits and the animals enclosures which was badly needed. These improvements are ongoing and the zoo is dedicated to improving the quality of life of all of the animals they house. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The exhibits... More

This was a nice zoo to visit. We really enjoyed seeing all of the animals. The chimpanzee exhibit was awesome. It allowed us to see the chimps up close. However, Make sure to take sun block and expect a good amount of walking. Overall it was a great visit,

This zoo is awesome. Take the train for a round trip ride and you can hear all kinds of cool stuff about the zoo. This place is great because there is so much to learn. They're always expanding with bigger and better exhibits. You can tell they really care about all the animals. Lots of beautiful gardens all inside the... More
