Adequate animal collection for a smaller zoo

Took my grandson to the zoo on a tepid day. He enjoyed it immensely. The zoo is a pleasant day's stroll with spacious accommodations for the animals.

Not to be missed! The Tulsa Zoo can be visited multiple times and you will enjoy each time! There is a lot of walking, so be prepared. However, there is also a miniature train that goes around the perimeter for anyone with mobility issues. Don't miss this in your trip to Tulsa.

The zoo hasn't changed a whole lot since I was a child. It's decent. If you're lucky the animals are out where you can see them. Sometimes they aren't. It has a lot of info so it's educational. Overpriced concessions. It has a fun train to ride from one end to the other. Indoor and outdoor exhibits. All in all... More

This place is so busy, but it's worth it. The exhibits are well maintained. Wanted to ride the train, but had to leave before we had time for that. Must go to the zoo!!

First off it was in the 50s on the day I went, perfect day for us! However, for the animals they didn't interact much. We went on the first Saturday of December which was free parking and we had a coupon to enter the zoo, very affordable. When it came time to eat lunch we thought we would try the... More

2nd year in a row trying to attend Hallowzooween. The zoo is not made to accommodate the level of traffic for this event. Lines over 1 mile long into car and when you finally get to the zoo the lines are absurd. There will not be a 3rd attempt. Good zoo to visit the rest of the year.

Tulsa's zoo may be smaller than some of the larger cities' zoos however Tulsa does strive to maintain a clean zoo, provide ample space for it's animals and educational opportunities for the visitors.

Definetley could use more animal variety. Love the park and grounds though. Gorgeous. The rainforest was our favorite. Though the elephant site being closed was a huge let down.

My family and I love the Tulsa Zoo! It got outdated for a bit but they have made awesome updates over the last couple of years and continue to do so by adding the Lost Kingdom. The construction is a bit of a pain but will be worth it in the end.

What a joy to take my kids to the zoo I've grown up with! So many changes over the years, all for the better of this already beautifully designed destination! Very friendly for strollers and wheel chairs with lots of flat, wide concrete walking paths. Yummy places to eat at, lots of places to get in out of the rain... More
