What a terrific tip! I have an errand in that part of town, today, and will pop on over. Been meaning to go for awhile and taking a walk out there sounds like just the thing. Also want to hit the gift shop for grandson. Christmas is coming.

Went a few weeks ago. Very nice and enjoyable. And many people around these parts could sure use a walk or two.

I went out there, today. Great time. I hadn't seen the Elephant House - OMG - wow. It was HUGE. My favorite part is always the Oklahoma area but the whole place is outstanding. Thanks for the idea, JohnH.

The Zoo might be a great place to visit with your out-of-town friends & family during the Christmas/New Years holidays.

Everyone might need snow shoes to get around though. LOL

Meanwhile, the Frank Jones Jr. of Art at OU now offers free admission. A new addition has recently opened making taking a special trip out there even more worthwhile.

The zoo is a terrific organization to support. I received a membership as a Christmas Gift and it was most appreciated. I love that it goes to support this organization.

Nice to see the OKC Zoo do something like that. Where I grew up the zoo was free every Monday, year round, to residents of the county. The zoo was always packed and everyone loved it.

The note about Fred Jones is good to hear as well. I haven't been there in almost 15 years, so might have to go check it out again. I just wish the OKC Art Museum was free admission. Again, back where I grew up, the art museum there is free year round - every day - and only charges for any special exhibits they may get. Loved that since the museum is fairly massive and if you really want to appreciate everything it takes 2 days to go through it all. Maybe some day they'll do that here. :)
