Fort Worth Zoo Tips (16)

Fort Worth Zoo

Fort Worth Zoo is home to thousands of native and exotic animals. At many of the natural habitat exhibits, visitors are only separated from the animals by a river or a waterfall, and are often face to face with the animals through large viewing windows.

There are many resturants and eateries, as well as outdoor picnic tables in several shaded areas.
Glass containers and alcoholic beverages are prohibited inside the Zoo.


$9 per adults (13+)
$6.50 for children (3-12)
$5.50 for seniors (65+)
Parking: $5.00 per vehicle daily.
Wednesdays - Half price admission.

Ft. Worth Zoo

There's more to Ft. Worth than the cowboy stuff. Ft. W. has a large zoo that compares with the San Diego Zoo (in my opinion.) About 5000 animals and exhibits such as...World of Primates, Asian Falls, Raptor Canyon, Koala Outback, and Penguin Island...I saw a special bat exhibit a few years ago. And, the apes are always my favorite. Was also kicked out of this zoo once - we lingered after closing time and didn't feel the need to leave - they came after us in golf carts and escorted us out - fun times!

Fort Worth Zoo is very nice. I...

Fort Worth Zoo is very nice. I was there last in 1995. At the time I thought it was nicer than the zoo in Dallas.
When we were there a school group was meeting in the one room school before going to see animals native to Texas. I think that is a nice way for the children to learn.

This is one of the best zoos I have seen. There are even several kinds of rhinos! A must see if you are in the area.
