  • Kids and adults alike will love the Tulsa Zoo! The animals are wonderful, of course. The new Lost Kingdom exhibit is great! The zoo is still small enough to walk around without getting exhausted. Refreshments and meals available at the grill in the park. But! There are other programs available! I was able to stay overnight with a small group as part of the "ickyology" presentation! My kids loved the night hike through the park and being able to see the animals that are usually nocturnal. The staff is pleasant and very knowledgeable. They are open to questions about the animals. It was a great experience and I am blessed to have one of the nation's top zoos in close proximity to my city! I recommend the Tulsa Zoo to anyone; with or without kids! Seeing the way we can commit to conservatism and protect the animals is valuable to our future!
  • I have been going to this zoo since I was a child. Took my now grown children there when they were young and now still enjoy going often and became members. It is not perfect but it is a really nice zoo with some wonderful exhibits. The trainers do a talk and show of sorts with the sea lions and with the penguins so check the board for times on those so you don't miss it. For a smaller town this zoo had done an amazing job with the space they have. Well worth spending a day there. Also if you like photographing animals there are countless photo ops for some great animal photography.
