Family events, kids activities and parenting resources in the San Antonio, Texas area!
It may not be the biggest zoo in Texas, but there is a fun zoo in Austin for kids. The Austin Zoo is a small non-profit zoo and animal sanctuary with over 350 rescued animals. Animals at the Austin Zoo include lions, tigers, bears, monkeys and reptiles.
Wear comfortable walking shoes.
Another good suggestion is to bring snacks and water for the kids. A cash only concession stand is available on site.
The Austin Zoo is a great thing to do in Austin with kids because it only takes about an hour and a half to go through the zoo and kids can get very close to the animals. There is also a petting zoo area where kids can feed animals like goats, deer, sheep and llamas with food purchased from the gift shop.
