    This Zoo is my favorite to go to eventually built it's own. The Ft. Worth zoo offers a variety of animals and plenty of shade. My favorite aspect is the "underground" aquarium view of the Penguins.

    The Fort Worth Zoo is an excellent choice for a location to bring you friends and family. My family and I visited this park six months ago and our favorite exhibit was the tundra inspired ecosystem.

    Great zoo with a great price. The animals were actually active during this visit (Sunday afternoon). The orangutans were very friendly and played catch with us. Food was average, typical for a zoo.

    One of my favorite zoos on the planet! Habitats are clean and feel very natural. Visited in the fall w/great weather for activity. Zoo is huge so get there early.

    Don't miss the "parrot" paradise- really parakeets and cockatiels- spend a little on seed sticks, but DoNot let your kids be the ones holding them right when you walk in. Birds flock to them crazily.

    Oh how fun. Even in the rain we had a blast seeing all the animals and the baby elephants are so cute! And you don't realize how big it actually is until you get in there!

    Get there when the zoo opens and go directly to the amazing bird enclosure. Buy a food stick and birds will swarm you to eat. If you don't get here until noon the birds are full!

    If you go in the spring, you will get to see almost every animal they have to offer. Summer & winter are not the times you want to visit

    I would suggest that the zoo catch the thousands of honey bees at the garbage can and put them on display in a honey comb!!! Or they could make the bees check their stingers at the gate. Just sayin'

    Great zoo. Big enough to use the train back, thank God! A big hit with my son! Wouldn't advise a winter trip, lots of the best animals are keeping warm out of site!

    Bring your own water/drinks if you can, all the walking works up a thrust and can end up getting costly buying waters!

    Half price Wednesdays! If you buy online and cannot print the confirmation, just open it on a smartphone and zoom to the barcode. The park readers will scan it!

    Awesome zoo but if you're going in the off-season pack a lunch because only like 2 food stands are open.

    This place is HUGE. Haven't been here in awhile. I love both the Dallas Zoo, and this zoo. Still, captivity makes me sad. Yes I have a love/hate relationship with zoos.

    This zoo doesn't have adequate parking. People have to park on the street and you can't get out.

    Bees hang out in and around just about every trash can in the zoo. Come prepared if you're allergic.
