San Antonio Zoo
Situated along the San Antonio River and next to Brackenridge Park, this zoo is considered one of the finest in America, housing more than 3,500 animals representing more than 700 species. The recently renovated "big cat" exhibit draws big crowds, as does the bird collection, which is one of the largest in the United States. Allow time for wandering aroundeven though there is plenty of directional signage, the exhibits are a confusing maze. San Antonio Zoo offers weekly educational programs and is also available for private events. Call for further information.
everybody raving about the "sa zoo" . Took my whole family [mom & grandkids ] first of all long lines !!! Staff in the front very rude. Not very much to see. If you were to be a bird watcher you would love this place! We had to walk almost a block in order to see another animal . Kids of all ages want to see animals thats why you pay money to go in there! Instead you see empty exhibits. We have been to many zoos [san diego,roading park zoo in fresno,ca.] to name a couple this was the worst! Waisted money. Never again!
This is a nice and beautiful zoo but it is in AFRICA THEAME so their are only animals that you see in AFRICA. So ther are no peguins polar bears. There are tons of birds!! I f you are a bird person you would love this place but other than that they need more variety. Oh and the people at the front gate are rude! they had a rope up to contain lines and with kids you know kids are going to grab the rope well every time some one would grab the rope they would yell at you and my boyfriend was paying with his credit card but i handed it to the cashier because he was holding kids and watching them while i took care of it and they flipped on me because they thought i had stole his wallet but he was only 4 ft away from me and i informed the cashier that he was right there and also showed hisid for him and she said she would not accept it unless he handed it to her and she did not tell me in a nice way!! so finally we got it taken care of but they need nicer employees to great the guest.
weekends are pretty horrible for finding parking, and the last time I went, the Brackenridge Park (Zoo is located in) was having a major car-break-in problem. their security patrols are inadequate. I would also add after taking out the little park and adding the baby area, the Zoo really made that place boring for older kids. They should have kept the park for the older kids to play or should add something aimed for the older kids at the same quality as the new baby area. Some zoos in bigger cities have shows rivaling SeaWorld, not the San Antonio Zoo. I hope the Africa Live will consider some kind of high quality entertainment with their new ampitheater. If you like walking in heat a lot, then you'll like the Zoo, otherwise it is lacking. And that early bird member offer is really lame, that is their clean-up time and the Zoo is really nasty, but they claim its a good deal for members, yea right.
I went to the zoo with my daughters grade school class. It was fun and the kids were accutally good. We saw every animal they could have ever captured. They kids had a good time. The prices of the food was OK and the price to get in was good. Over all I would recommend it for a days outing.
Because this zoo has everything i could posibly amagine. My favorit part is the reptiles and all the animals. I just love this zoo. although it would be the best zoo ever if you seeled funnel cakes. please?
We loved it once we were in, but it was crazy getting in!! I think yall should make more paying windows because it takes a very long time to get in!!! And maybe a bigger entrance door :) But other than that my family LOVES it!!!
This is a fun and ssafe place to take your kids all year long. We have been going since I was little and I have a lot of memories to go with my experience, and I am doing the same with my children. I hope it is still around when my boys grow up and have a family so they can make memories too!!
It was our very first trip to SA as a family and we had our 4 year old son with us. We thought it would be fun to go to this function! HA we so did not have fun. We got there and saw a few people who had rented zoo wagons for the kids so we went to the rental stand and NOPE sorry not allowed. Come to find out only "members" got to use them that night and since we are out of towners...no go for us. So we said OK lets eat and see some animals. Mind you it was starting to get dark out and the animals all started to go in for the night. The food was fair~you had to walk to diffrent sections of the zoo to get diffrent things. I thought they would have a food stand next to a beverage stand but that isn't how it happened. I really think they didn't expect as many people to come out for it as what did. Needless to say out money could have been spent elsewhere and we could have gotten better use out of it.
Loved the zoo its very good and expanding can't wait to go back in the spring. The exhibits are done well and we found the staff to be helpfull and informative. Good for all ages. But next time I don't think we will rat there. Plenty of good restaurants close by.If you have little ones the train is a must do!
