Had a great time the Oklahoma city zoo is one of the cleanest and best maintained zoos I have been to. The zoo staff are very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the new elephant exhibit in the back of the park though it is a bit of a walk. Also the Oklahoma trails exhibit is really cool to walk through. However I am saddened that the aquarium is shut down till some time late 2019 I always enjoyed the variety of fish and other sea creatures in there. Overall great family oriented location to visit.
I absolutely love coming to the zoo. Over the years it has been amazing to see all of the changes and new exhibits. It is a place where you can see they give great care to the animals. Not only do you get to see animals in more natural habitats you can get a good work out in walking the trails. There are also lots of fun things for kids such as Stingray Bay, keeper connections, Carousel, and play grounds. If you enjoy going to the zoo I highly recommend getting an Zoo Pass so you can enjoy it anytime and not feel like you need to stay an entire day every time
Nice zoo, lots of animals and fun things to do! Nice air conditioned place to eat and lots of information on the animals in the zoo! Playgrounds, train and other cool things for the kids! Plus in the summer they have misters to keep you cooled down on hot Oklahoma days!
One of my families favorite places to go!! Lots of exhibits to see. You can easily spend an entire day there and still not see everything. Great family fun for all ages!! Reasonably priced!! 🦓🦍🐧🦒
So many animals! The new Asia exhibits are beautifully executed. The new restaurant has fresh new choices and is delicious.. Just don't buy the rice crispy treat.
