“feed the aquatic life!”
Housed in its original Art Deco building, the Aquarium is home to a varied collection of thousands of aquatic animals. These include marine and freshwater fish, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. After undergoing an $8 million transformation, the new Children's Aquarium at Fair Park debuted in September, 2010. The Children's Aquarium showcases the "greatest hits" of the sea. Kids will love viewing sharks, jellyfish, eels, rays, piranhas, turtles, clown fish, and other species from popular movies and books. The child-friendly design offers interactive exhibits for hands-on exploration, with a Coastal touch pool filled with horseshoe crabs, sea stars, sea urchins, anemones, and other creatures. An outdoor pavilion includes Stingray Bay, where guests can feed and interact with cownose and southern rays and small bamboo sharks. Eagle rays, zebra, bonnethead, and other sharks will be swimming nearby in a larger pool. You'll find the Children's Aquarium between the Texas Star Ferris wheel and the Fair Park Band Shell.
