San Antonio Zoo Zootenial

We know a thing or two about being a part of San Antonio’s history. So do our friends at the San Antonio Zoo. This year marks the official 100th anniversary of the San Antonio Zoo. Their humble beginnings can be traced back to 1914 when Colonel George W. Brackenridge gifted a scenic area of San Antonio for the public to enjoy watching buffalo graze and elk meander, as well as see monkeys, lions and bears (oh my!). Now, the San Antonio houses more than 8,500 animals!

The zoo is one of San Antonio’s most family friendly attractions, bringing together all ages to admire and learn about the creatures that walk amongst us in the world. Did you know the San Antonio Zoo is the only one in the United States that has a separate children’s area designed for children aged 0-5 years?

All this year, the Zoo offers special attractions and promotions to help celebrate this remarkable milestone.
