Though it's small compared to other zoos across the country, Tulsa's iteration does do well with what it's got, according to recent guests. The chimpanzees, prairie dogs and Asian elephants are the most popular of the zoo's residents. On a Saturday or Sunday in March through October, you can take a tour of the grounds atop a camel (a memorable experience, according to those who've had the opportunity to do so). What's more, there's also a buried treasure exhibit, a seasonal petting zoo and the ONEOK Safari Train and Arvest Wildlife Carousel.
The Tulsa Zoo and Living Museum sits pretty along 84 acres of the city's northeastern Mohawk Park. The zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (not including Christmas day and the third Friday in June, when the zoo is closed). Admission (which does not include tickets for the zoo's rides and camel tours) costs $10 for adults, $6 for children ages 3 to 11, $8 for those older than 65 and is free for kids 2 and younger. Parking is free from November through March, but costs $2 per vehicle on weekends from April through October 31. There are several concession carts on-site, as well as a full-service restaurant and gift shop. Visit the website for more details and prices on the camel tour, train rides and discounts.
