Oklahoma City Zoo And Botanical Garden - Review
Opened in 1902, this zoo has distinguished itself as one of the city's main family attractions. 512 species of animals can be found here covering 1900 different individuals. The zoo has a great number of attractions to entertain its more than a million annual visitors. 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. There are also animal shows, such as the sea lion show, and the giraffe feeding.
A number of these exotic animals roam freely around the hundred and thirty-eight acre Gardens at the zoo. The garden reflects the natural habitats of Oklahoma State - eastern deciduous forests and tall grass prairies. Of the exhibits at these Gardens you should especially check out The water conservation Garden, dwarf Conifers, pines, Oaks, and Magnolias, Bamboo, tropical, Cacti, and agave plants.
The Zoo museum also recounts the history and development of the zoo. It consists of a historical archive and two galleries.

Oklahoma City Zoo And Botanical Garden, Oklahoma City Reviews
Really enjoyed our visit to the zoo today. The snake exhibit is awesome, they have some pretty big snakes that the kids really enjoyed! The kimono dragon was cool too, and there was so much to see we actually missed a few of the big ones like the giraffes, but all the more reason to go back! There are lots of areas where kids can actually run around and play which is nice, and the bird feeding area is awesome. Can't wait to go back! Totally worth the trip from Lawton!!
This is a legit zoo. You can spend at least 2 hours here. I bought general admission tickets and thought it was definitely worth the price. Wear good shoes because there will be plenty of walking. I'm not sure if this zoo does something different but many animals were very close to the front of the enclosures and they were not hiding like might see at other zoos.
The Oklahoma City Zoo was a good area. There was a variety of animals and a nice background to them. The place itself was taken care of and the museum areas and hospital areas were very nice it seemed. The food was good at the chicken area, it was made very good and I had no problems there. Not too many people but there wasn't a whole lot of animals like Tiger's and exotic animals they all seemed to be put away. Overall experience was enjoyed though.
We have been here before and new better but the heat sucks and the walking sucks. Several of the displays have been taken down or were getting maintenance so you dont get to see everything "yes i understand things need maintenance and upgrades". The seal show was pretty entertaining for my grandson. All in all it is a good big zoo, but go early in the morning or on a cooler fall or spring day.
We have been loyal Zoo Friends members for quite a few years and absolutely love coming to the zoo. They have fun and exciting events throughout the year to help change things up and get you in with a different feeling. My son loves trick or treating here around Halloween. The Ostrich Egg Breakfast, while jam packed with guests, is still very fun and very good food. If you have a child interested in animals at all send them to Zoo Camp/Zoo School. It's pricey, but well worth the price. Kids have an absollutely fantastic time.
