Dallas Zoo

The Dallas Zoo is famous as the state's oldest and largest zoological park, nestled three miles south of downtown Dallas. It spans 106 acres and houses over 2,000 animals representing 406 species, including several endangered species. The zoo offers a variety of experiences for visitors, such as animal encounters, shows, and educational programs. It is also home to a large African savanna exhibit and a children's zoo.

The Dallas Zoo has a rich history dating back to 1888 when it was established with just two deer and two mountain lions. Over the years, it has expanded significantly and undergone several renovations and upgrades, including the addition of the Wilds of Africa exhibit, which opened in 1990. The zoo also has a strong commitment to conservation and research and participates in various programs and initiatives to protect and preserve endangered species and their habitats. It is a great destination for families and animal lovers, offering a fun and educational experience for all ages.
