Wow!! What a great place!! It really reminded me of the San Diego Zoo. Its not as big and doesn't have Pandas, but wow, it was top notch!! A definate must see and was a beautiful day to see it.

I would have to say other than being really convenient to get in and out of, pretty (a lot of trees and folliage), but it had great food within the park and the way that it is set up where you really seem to be able to get close to the animals was really fun!!

We had a blast..can't recommend it enough!

The Ft. Worth Zoo, one of the best zoos in America. It puts everyone else to shame in Texas. I've always loved our zoo. I still have memories of going there on our pre-k, kindergarden, 3rd grade, and 7th grade field trips.

It is really a great place to visit...we have a membership and it was 105$ (two adults, one child).
We go there at least once a month.

It is splendid. They've done a great job with most of the areas for the animals, although I did feel sorry for the bobcat last time I was there...it just didn't have enough space. I highly recommend it.

That was my first impression, too!!! We were regular visitors to the San Diego Zoo when we lived there, I was really afraid I was going to miss it. I was so pleasantly suprised with the Ft. Worth Zoo!!! It kind of reminded me of the Wild Animal Park without the tram ride.

I grew up going to the Fort Worth zoo, I love it. Do they still have that little train that travels through the park that runs along the bank of the Trinity??

Its nice because its in close proximity to the parks, the botanic gardens and the museums...

I used to hear from people who lived in the nice area behind the zoo that sometimes the monkeys would get out and come visit...then get frightened and run back home...one friend found a handprint on her window, that was clearly primate...when she thought she had seen a monkey out the window, she was sure she had to much to drink.

That's too funny!!!

They do have a train, which my kids LOVED, but it doesn't really go anywhere, it just makes a loop.

The reptile house is AMAZING! The on in San Diego is so dated, it's embarrassing.
