Where more than imaginations run WILD!
Founded in 1955 the Amarillo Zoo is a place to share the wonders of the animal world with kids of all ages. The beautiful 15-acre site is located in Thompson Park and features over 60 species of animals. The zoo is designed for fun and discovery and will provide a lifetime of memories. Here, you'll do more than just look...you'll experience the animal world.
Once you've finished enjoying the zoo, make sure to visit Thompson Park. Visitors will discover shaded picnic areas, playgrounds, beautiful lakes, swimming, tennis and walking trails in this 330-acre regional park.
Due to the ice and cold temperatures we will remain closed today, November 28, 2015. Our zoo keepers are hard at work caring for the animals and making sure that they are warm and comfortable. We will reopen when the weather warms and the paths are clear. Thank you for your patience!
