  • This such a nice zoo. They take good care of the animals and new births occasionally. The zoo is always trying to improve the conditions of the animal inclosers to provide more space and private...

  • Great visit!!! The red panda was absolutely memorable. It was in the conservation center at the time, presumably with one-way glass. It climbed right down to a ledge right at the window, so close that we could see the texture of its tongue and fur as it ate a snack. Truly unforgettable for that alone. The staff were all amazing! The train driver and the ticket cashier at the train booth near the front entrance both were incredibly kind.
  • Tulsa zoo is a large zoo so plan on at least 5 hours if you have kids to walk the entire zoo. With that said it is an amazing zoo for sure, with the new lost kingdom area and play ground the kids interaction is out of this world. The themes in each section as add to the experience and make you feel like you're really there. Also the way they set up the series of indoor exhibits where you walk from one to another Is Really neat. I highly recommend this zoo for sure and especially if you have kids.
