About Us

The Dallas Zoo, founded in 1888, began with just two deer and two mountain lions in City Park.  It later moved to Fair Park in 1909 and quickly outgrew its second home, moving to Marsalis Park in 1912 where it stands today.  Throughout the past 100 years, numerous upgrades have been made and collections expanded.  In 1955, the Dallas Zoological Society was established as a non-profit to support the Zoo.  In 2009 a public-private partnership was formed to transition to private management of the Zoo.  In addition, the Dallas Zoo is home to more than 2,000 animals, and today, the Zoo is thriving with new exhibits such as the Koala Walkabout presented by Kimberly-Clark Corporation, SOAR, A Festival of Flight, and the Giants of the Savanna to name a few.  In 2017, the Simmons Hippo Outpost will open, returning these remarkable “river horses” to the Zoo for the first time in 15 years.

Lisa, love to see Penguins especially since we used to have a cat who used to watch TV and when March of the Penguins came on he would watch it so intently:)Endre

I'd love to see that.  My daddy has some wonderful penguin photos from his navy days and two visits to the south pole.

Good morning Lisa. I've been to the zoo a long time ago.  Once you go there you want to go back, at least I do, one of these days.

Sounds like fun Lisa.  And, they even dress up in tuxes for the visitors.
