Houston Zoo, Houston Reviews

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Even though we went on a hot summer Saturday there is plenty of shade from the direct sun all through the zoo. The inside exhibits are placed in good places to give you a break from the heat. They have so many unique animals in addition to the regular zoo animals you expect to see. The sea lions and the tropical birds were my favorite exhibits. Overall Houston zoo is amazing!

  • This is the place to go when you have a full day to spend. I recommend going early because there is a lot to see and do. The layout of the park is very expansive and it is almost similar to a race track. You can start at one end and walk all the around and end up where you began. The animals are all healthy and they seem to be well cared for. In addition, there are plenty of concession stands that offer various food and drink choices including beer, wine and cocktails. There is a splash pad and a peering zoo for the little ones which I feel is a perk.

  • It's like every year the prices are going up. I love the zoo. I come here at least 4 times a year. I enjoy bringing my family. The reason for the 4 star, is because there is always renovation going on. I like that it's big and they have snack and beverage stands almost in every corner. They also have a lot of shaded areas. My kids enjoy the kids zone. They have a petting zoo and kids play area so the parents can relax while the kids run around and play.

  • My family had a great time at the Houston Zoo. We especially enjoyed the opportunity to feed lettuce leaves to the giraffes. The photographer managed to snap a photo of the exact moment when a giraffe licked my infant daughter’s hand during the feeding, which I thought was hilarious. We also enjoyed watching the elephants get bathed. Other highlights included petting some very friendly goats and watching the lions take a cat nap. We also have fond memories of the free-roaming peacocks. Some of the zoo was closed for renovation while we were there in February 2018. Overall, I really recommend the Houston Zoo if you are visiting Houston and looking for something to do with the family.

  • The kids love coming here! So much so that we hold a family pass. There are several interactive stations and the animals are typically out and about, if not they are easily found inside. We can spend an entire day here easily! Just outside the zoo is a pond with paddle boats that is not included in zoo admission however it's next on our list to check out! Very family friendly and day long entertainment!
