A truly amazing, beautifully done zoo. What wonderfully thought out habitats. I'd recommend taking the train as soon as you enter to the back of the park & spend the day working back to front for exiting.

Ok, so I am from a small town so this zoo was way bigger than I imagined. They have many exhibits and different animals. The downside is that if you go on a crowded day you wont get to see much of the animals since some exhibits are small. Enjoyed my visit with my family. Lots of places to grab... More

We use to love coming to the zoo here, but you can tell they are becoming more commercialized and care more about profit then the animals. Sad! Also it gets to crowded now. To many people.

The zoo was great. They didn't give a discount for having a zoo membership from our city's zoo though. Some zoos and or aquariums will provide a discounted price of you're a member elsewhere. The day wasn't too hot so many animals were out to view. It gets very busy, so I imagine right at opening, you can cover less... More

I have visited the Fort Worth Zoo every year since moving to Fort Worth. It's expanded and new attractions have been added for the whole family to enjoy, some areas will be outdoors and others are indoors. If you have kids this is a must see location.

Hard the Fort Worth Zoo was a must see so we took the kids their for a nice day outing. It was quite an adventure and I have to say the facility was well taken care of and maintained. Would recommend it.

The zoo might have been off its A game the day I went as a large hail storm had passed through that same morning and the zoo was scrambling to open two hours late due to cleaning and safety issues (it was alot of hail). The zoo was clean and the animals do appear to be well cared for. However,... More

Lots of interactive exhibits and it seems that the animals are always visible unlike some other zoos I have been to. Worth the trip, but wear your tennis shoes!

I enjoy zoos. They are at the top of my list when I go anywhere. The Accredited, award winning Fort Worth Zoo is definitely in my top 10! The Fort Worth Zoo has several miles of strolling while you watch thousands of animals going about their daily routine. All habitats are as natural as possible. There is usually a special... More
