Oklahoma City Zoo, Oklahoma City

(4.4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Oklahoma City Zoo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Oklahoma City Edition.

  • Family in from all over the country this weekend for a wedding this weekend. This is a perfect place to spend a day outside. Perfect day! Must see the gorillas and the grizzly bears. Shout out to one of the employees (they were all super nice and helpful!) Charmaine told us all about the passes and interactive exhibits! We will be back! Thank you for a wonderful day!
  • Amazing experience! Do not miss this place! Great trip for families and adults alike. Wear your comfy walking shoes, as the property sits on almost 200 acres. If you have the chance to do it, consider getting their VIP package for behind the scenes tours, so much fun!!! Staff were very interactive and friendly! This is definitely an all day experience. Keep it up OKC Zoo, you guys have knocked it out of the park!
  • the oklahoma city zoo is one of the best zoos in the nation, and it's obvious why. so many animals, many actually bred at the zoo (including multiple generations of gorillas born there). the habitats are wonderful, they're aesthetically pleasing and you can actually see the animals being animals. in some cases you can get reasonably close with no bars or cages; this is no animal jail, it's a first-rate zoo.
  • I've been to some of the biggest zoos in the country and I honestly think the OKC zoo is a great experience. It's bigger than you expect and for $8 it's a bargain. I recommend bringing a stocked wheeled cooler, which is allowed, and save yourself from overpriced food and drink. I cannot however recommend coming here in the summer. You're going to be a lot more comfortable and see far more animal activity if you come in the spring or fall.
  • It's clean & well groomed, with plenty of animal attractions & playgrounds. Very family-friendly place to spend the day. Also has motorized wheelchairs to rent for the disabled, on first-come basis. Great place to spend for all ages!
