Compared to others zoos I’ve visited this is one of the nicer zoos. Easy to get around and see everything in 3-4 hours. Restrooms were lacking in the cleanliness - no toilet paper in stalls, dirty, wet floors, trash on floor, etc. Food was overpriced...More

Now that the kids are grown, we had the opportunity to actually enjoy the Ft. Worth Zoo as a couple at our own leisure. Wow. This is among the best zoos in the country, right up there with the San Diego Zoo and the Audubon...More
