Situated on 56 acres on the grounds of Brackenridge Park, this is not a zoo where you’ll see frazzled parents pushing tired, fussy toddlers in their strollers. The under-5 set has its own interactive playscape called Kronkosky’s Tiny Tots Nature Spot, where little ones get to participate in cool activities like a ladybug release. Our favorite part is the zoo’s new Africa Live! 2 habitat, which opened in February 2010, and includes the endangered okapi (envision a very tall horse wearing zebra-print stockings) rarely seen in either the wild or in captivity.
