My daughter and 3 grandchildren and I have gone several times. We love the children's zoo. It is wonderful, educational and just plain fun. I bought a family season pass so that we could go for shorter periods of time. We often take the Dart train out and that in itself is a treat for the children. Forget the naysayers. This is one of the least under-appreciated attractions in Dallas.

everytime i turn around there is a gorilla gone loose. this zoo is scary not to mention just too many hills to go up and down with strollers. Im not the most fit person but im not a mountain climber either.

The Dallas Zoo is good for a city zoo and actually a lot larger than a lot of city zoos. They get a bad wrap because Fort Worth Zoo is so good and so close. The Dallas Zoo has a lot of small habitats for the animals but they do their best to make the habitats look real. They have a reptile area that is very neat and the gorilla habitat is my favorite. The kids love to walk around - it is a little hilly so bring you stroller or cart for the kids.

I like the Dallas Zoo... not as much as Fort Worth but the Dallas Zoo makes for a great day out. They have a lot of really unique exhibits and animals. The zoo could use an update but it is a nice zoo non the less. There is a great gorilla exhibit. To find the zoo, look for the huge garaffe off the highway.. that or the Zoo McDonalds.

This place is great for school field trips or to take children to because they seem to enjoy it. When I went, a majority of the visitors were children. The zoo is huge and has a lot of animals and keeps on adding more each year. My personal favorite are the colorful birds.

PROS: big, lots of animals
CONS:

BUT it's not the best zoo! The animals seemed depressed or they are asleep a lot of the time. The animals also dont seem to have much room so I always end up feeling sorry for them. However it's not a bad place to go. It's usually always clean and the price isn't too high. My kids still enjoy the zoo and that's what matters most. I really do like the reptile area and the petting zoo area is always my daughters favorite!

PROS: Good zoo if you just are looking for a place to show you kids animals
CONS: The animals look depressed.

The Dallas Zoo is a nice zoo that is really trying hard to become better. They are an older zoo that has been in Dallas for decades. The zoo is nice but shows signs of being a little run down but it does seem that they are always trying to fix it up and are trying to expain their programs. It is a nice way to spend a day with the kids and they have a lot of animals in their enclosures. There is plenty of parking and if you have any questions- stop one of the staff- they are very friendly and helpful.

Currently they are doing some remodeling at the Dallas Zoo. Justin and I went about a month ago. The price to get in was reasonable. I really enjoyed going to this zoo. The tiger area was really neat. They made it look very asian. All of the animals seemed to be happy, so you don't leave feeling sorry for them. This zoo is big compared to other zoos I have been to.

This zoo is a good place for you to take your small children. Even though they had a gorilla escape last year it's safe. I have a season pass and we go on a regular basis. We really enjoy it.

The Dallas Zoo is really a well kept and well run zoo. I love the train that takes you all around the perimeter of the place. It doesn't cost extra either. The cost is not bad and they do offer specials on Wednesdays.

PROS: Lots of different animals
CONS: Location

The Dallas Zoo is a wonderful days outing for the family and is the closest zoo to Allen. It has easy access with the DART and is very affordable. We liked our last visit so much that we took out a family membership which was just a few dollars then what it cost us to get in for the day. The monorail is great and allows you to see other parts of the zoo that you don't get to see on foot. I love the new section with the kids interactive areas and petting zoo that they have and the gigantic fiah tank. The river bed is also a neat place for the kids to play.

All kids love the zoo and this is one great zoo. It is very clean and they have a lot of animals to view. They even have a petting zoo for the kids. They have great rest areas and great food when you need to take a break from the walking. All the animals are kept in great shape. My kids never want to leave when we go.

The hills are crazy for strollers. It's bad when they have to post warnings about stroller safety on a walking path hill! The Zoo Grounds are old and outdated. The crowds here are less than the FW Zoo... for a reason! They had an unfortunate incident a few years ago where a gorilla escaped and I truthfully am wary to return ever again. Drive over to FW for a much better Zoo! Location is out of the way, parking is ok. Price is steep for what you get.

This zoo is very clean and well maintained. It has some unique features like the tram that goes around the zoo if you prefer to ride instead of walk. THe exhibits are nice and you can make a nice family trip here at a low cost. The food and drinks can be a little expensive, but otherwise a very nice family activity.

This place is a pretty cool place to go. I think that this is about as good as it can be for being a zoo in a big city. I like this place because the animals there are common animals. There really isnt anything that you would see that is out of the norm for a zoo. The scare with the gorrilla getting lose though a few years ago did make me not want to go back to this place. I mean if it can get out then you think that other things can get out. I think that it is a little out of date and maybe needs to get up to date but other then that this place is really nice to go to on the weekends with the family.

This is a decent zoo if you're looking for a family outing. Lots of animals and activities. Clean. Traffic around the zoo can sometimes be a problem. Parking can be a hassle. On a nice day the zoo can get crowded.

For a wild family adventure, check out the Dallas Zoo. In addition to colorful animals and birds, the Dallas Zoo has a reptile house that lets you get up close with snakes, lizards and insects, and a world-class tiger exhibit that showcases endangered tigers and cats from around the world. The Monorail Safari is an enjoyable excursion through the wilds of Africa, even for small children.

The Dallas Zoo is one of the nation's better zoos. They feature exotic animals, themed habitats, and a raised tram ride that takes you on a safari inside the various zoo enclosures. You travel through the Rainforest and across the African savannah and see many interesting and unusual creatures.

It is said to be one of the oldest zoos in Texas. At 95 acres, this zoo is home to over 2,000 animals, including many rare and endangered species. It also has a Reptile Collection, Reptile Discovery Center, and a Walk-Thru Rain Forest Aviary. Within in the park there is also a 25-acre Wilds of Africa exhibit. You actually feel like you are in Africa. The Lacerte Family Children's Zoo if you have small children is another place to check out. It's geared more for the younger kids to help them understand better and it offers activites especially for them. For a day full of education this is not too expensive.

The Dallas Zoo is a great place to let the kids wonder around and learn all about the wildlife animals. The employees there are so wonderful with the kids. They talk to the kids about the animals and answer any questions they may have.
We just took a Field trip to the zoo and it was wonderful. Its very shaded on the walkways, which is great for keeping everyone cool on the long walks. They have bathrooms and water fountains everywhere along the walkways. The animals seem to be tooken care of very well. They also have a restaurant and gift shops.
