Congratulations to the El Paso Zoo for receiving the El Paso Times annual Best of the Border Award “Best Family Outing” in 2015.

The El Paso Times selects the awards annually through both online and print ballots. Voters must specifically designate who they think is best. This year’s print and online participation exceeded last year’s level of entries. The El Paso Zoo has an annual attendance of more than 30,000 people, and is El Paso’s most visited family attraction.

The El Paso Times “Best of the Border 2015” will feature a special edition in an online section on the El Paso Times website.

During Spring Break the El Paso Zoo will be offering various educational and fun activities for kids and teens such as meet the zoo keepers and other activities featuring some of the Zoo animals. Keep in mind that some of these Spring Break activities are free and some are available for a minimal fee.
