These include the elephant habitat, the lion overlook, the Aquaticus (1,500 aquatic creatures), the stunning butterfly garden, Animals from various exotic islands around the world, a herpetarium, the endangered species carousel the animals of the Oklahoma Trail, and an exhibit dedicated to the great apes.

Oklahoma City Zoo And Botanical Garden, Oklahoma City Reviews

  • Park lacks "flow" between exhibits and lacks a "correct" direction. Aquarium was totally shutdown with the exception of the seal and sea lion exhibit. Had some really unique, interactive elements that my wife and I loved. There is a zoo hospital where park goers can view animals under surgery or examination. There are also exposure areas where patrons can get into the exhibit with birds or wallabies.

  • We love the okc zoo! Whether you have kids or not, it's a lovely place to visit. Prices for entry aren't bad, but of course food/beverages are pretty pricey. No one will care if you bring in your own drinks though. They do a great job maintaining a wide array of climate appropriate plants. A lot of employees are undergrad and grad students interning as part of their education, which is great. Make sure to catch some of the elephant shows!

  • The Oklahoma City Zoo is one of the best in the country. My parents first took me there when I was 4 years old, and I have been going back ever since. I am now 66. The displays are marvelous, the animals are fantastic, and the exhibits are artfully done. There is a tram to take you around to various places, so you don't have to do a lot of walking. There is a butterfly garden, a seal performance and much much more.

  • Pleasantly surprised by the OKC Zoo. It's a well-kept, well-maintained facility. I certainly won't claim to be a zoo expert, but after taking my daughter, I left impressed. Lots of different areas, including a kids area which was great. Not a vast food selection, but certainly adequate, and fairly priced. Worth joining the Zoo Friends.

  • Me and my fiancée had a great day out at this zoo yesterday, the hours went by so fast! The variety of animals was great, however there were some that were unavailable to look at. Needs more signs and better navigation but all in all, a great day out, affordable too!
