Many visitors to Fort Worth, TX are surprised to find that the state's fifth largest city has one of the top-rated zoos in the country. The Fort Worth Zoo has been ranked as a top zoo by travel guides, magazines and national papers and has grown significantly from its humble 1909 beginnings. The facility opened with one lion, two bear cubs, an alligator and a few local species, and it now displays exhibits from around the world, boasting more than 5,000 native and exotic animals.
The Fort Worth Zoo is open 365 days a year, taking in more than a million visitors annually. A favorite attraction is Texas Wild!, an entertaining and thought-provoking exhibit that paints a picture of the state's size, geography and animal diversity that celebrates the heritage of the Lone Star State.
In addition to the huge Texas exhibit, Fort Worth Zoo patrons can visit cheetahs, primates and meerkat mounds, as well as a number of dedicated bird exhibits featuring parrots, flamingos, penguins and raptors. There is also a mountain of activities for kids, including the Country Carousel, the Petting Corral, interactive farming at the Playbarn and the Yellow Rose Express train. The Fort Worth Zoo has something to please every patron, regardless of age.
