Great zoo! Can even arrive by DART!
Never disappoints. The Dallas Zoo and arboretum are the undiscovered gems of Dallas activities.
What a great place! Not only did I get to see animals, I got to feed and sometimes even pet them. I think my faves were the birds - both the bird show (which, oddly enough, included a capibarra) and Bird's Landing, where you can purchase popsicle sticks with birdseed stuck to them. The birds will then perch on your wrist or shoulder and munch away. Also got to feed giraffes and goats (got to pet the goats as well). Kids can ride ponies and even a camel. It's a great zoo, where they do their best to teach eco-friendly policy as well.
Good Zoo and alot to see but Ft. Worth Zoo is easily a better experience!
With a train station right at the zoo, this is a wonderful place to spend with family and friends. Visit their web site for acceptable items to bring, prices and best times to visit. Do bring a camera with plenty memory as there is a lot to see and do! And always remember to not feed the animals unless posted.
This place was quite & peaceful! My mom had a great time too! I would love to go back!!!
