See the exotic species, marvel at the butterfly exhibit, and enjoy the botanical garden at Oklahoma City Zoo. Along with animals from all over the world like tigers, elephants, and giraffes, the zoo hosts a wide selection of species native to Oklahoma, from bears and alligators, to birds and bats. You can walk around, hop on one of the train rides, or take a boat tour on Zoo Lake. The zoo especially focuses on opportunities for children to learn about wildlife while playing and interacting with the animals. During the hot summer months, a lot of the activities include splashing water, so consider bringing a spare set of clothes for the kids.

This zoo was fun. The animals seemed happy, active and well cared for. The whole zoo was nicely maintained and looked excellent. The snow leopard was the only animal we couldn't really see well, because they built the zoo where you have multiple ways of seeing most animals. Very reasonable priced, and the pavilion food looked and smelled so good. It was a huge menu.
We had a great time. Kids had a wonderful time though out the park. Had a great time in the kids play area. They almost forgot that they were in the zoo.it seemed that all the animals had a large area to walk in. Park was well kept up with and a staff were wonderful. We are not from here, but will definitely come back
