Construction Update

Construction Update


Upon entering the Zoo this winter, you may feel like you're entering a construction zone. Don't let that stop you from having a great day at the Fort Worth Zoo! There is construction taking place in the front plaza and we want to update you on a few changes happening right now at the Zoo:

During the winter months, the main path entering the park will undergo a series of renovations as we repave, redirect and replant parts of the existing path. This construction will ultimately widen the pathway into the Zoo and is happening right now for two reasons: the winter is the slowest time of year; and with the ongoing pandemic, there are even fewer people in the park. This project may affect the Yellow Rose Express Train Safari Depot from Dec. 3 through Dec. 18. We're hoping to complete this project quickly. It should be finished by February 2021.

Parrot Paradise is closed until Jan. 29, 2021 for exhibit construction and maintenance.

And lastly, the construction on phase three of our building project, A Wilder Vision, has been scheduled for a few years now and the time has come to begin renovations on the big cat exhibits. Click here to learn more about these exciting new changes. You can still visit the Zoo's other big cats and canines: jaguars, mountain lions, coyotes and wolves down in Texas Wild!.

Although construction is happening in a few areas of the Zoo, the majority of our exhibits are not affected. 

  • African Savanna
  • Musuem of Living Art
  • Raptor Canyon
  • World of Primates
  • Penguins
  • Stingray Cove
  • Texas Wild
  • Toyota Children's Ranch

We hope to see you soon out at the Zoo!
