Upon entering the Zoo, 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!
Beginning July 5, 2022, the Mountains and Desert area of Texas Wild! will be closed for improvements.
Flamingo Bay is currently closed for improvements and is scheduled to reopen in fall 2022. While the Caribbean flamingos are off exhibit, you can visit the Chilean flamingos, along with the lesser flamingos, across from the Museum of Living Art (MOLA).
Construction on phase three of our building project, A Wilder Vision, is underway and we’ve said farewell (for now) to the lions, tigers, hyenas and zebras until 2023. However, you can still see the majority of habitats and animals here at the Zoo! Visit the brand new Elephant Springs to meet the elephant herd, including baby Brazos (link to Brazos page), and feed the giraffes in the African Savanna. We’ve got 7,000 different animals including hippos, meerkats, a jaguar, mountain lions and otters. Visit our herpetarium with hundreds of reptiles and amphibians, many of them rare and endangered, and see exotic bird species everywhere you turn!
Upon completion of this third phase, the animals will return to renovated, reimagined habitats that will allow guests to observe and interact with them like never before! Click here to learn more about these exciting new changes.
