Directions to the Zoo
To reach the Fort Worth Zoo (1989 Colonial Parkway, Fort Worth, Texas 76110) from Interstate 30, exit University Drive. Go south on University for approximately one mile to Colonial Parkway and turn left. Once you are on Colonial Parkway, follow the signs to the Zoo.
If you are on Interstate 35, exit Berry Street and head west about 2.5 miles to University. Turn right, heading north, on University for approximately one mile to Colonial Parkway and turn right. Once you are on Colonial Parkway, follow the signs to the Zoo.
Please note: When you leave the Zoo, if you plan to take Interstate 30 westbound from University, you will need to seek an alternate route, as that entrance is closed for construction. Alternate routes include taking University south to Berry; taking Colonial Parkway westbound, across University; or Forest Park north to Interstate 30. We suggest consulting smartphone map apps, like Waze, Google Maps or Beat the Traffic.
Beat the traffic and take the Safari Express
The Fort Worth Transportation Authority is once again offering Zoo visitors an alternative way to travel to and from the Zoo.
The Safari Express route is from the downtown Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC), located at 1001 Jones Street in downtown Fort Worth, to the Zoo’s main parking lot – a short walk from the zoo’s front gate. The Safari Express will run every 30 minutes March 10 through 18. The first shuttle leaves the ITC at 9:15 a.m. and the last shuttle leaves the Zoo at 6:15 p.m.
