Why We Love The Dallas Zoo (And You Should, Too!)

Reunion Tower Ambassadors have several tips to enhance panoramic Dallas views from 470-feet on the outdoor GeO-Deck. As a reader of the Upsider, you may already know what key piece of equipment is installed at regular intervals around the outer observation ring. High-powered telescopes make it possible to distinguish The Texas Star from The Top of Texas and allow us to almost make out the tip of a giraffe’s nose on a well-known fixture at the Dallas Zoo. 

Reunion Tower and the Dallas Zoo have had a longstanding partnership since the GeO-Deck reopened in 2013. The Tower has been a beacon to signal the arrival of a new zoo baby or special exhibit, and the Zoo is quick to shower its BFF with affection on social media. 

There are plenty of reasons to love a zoo that’s (almost) as big as Texas, because it’s the largest zoo in Texas with 106 developed acres. As the first founded zoo in Texas (1888), it continues to add new exhibits, most recently in 2017 with the Simmons Hippo Outpost. It was the zoo’s first major exhibit since the award-winning Giants of the Savanna opened in 2010. 

This spring break, each day will feature a different delight from Magical Monday to Tall Tales with the Dallas Public Library and up-close encounters with the Dallas Zoo’s Animal Adventures team.
