Our family has an annual pass and boy do we use it! We love to pick one or two areas to visit when we go. We often go twice a week depending on weather. We love the shade of the zoo and the layout. The staff are friendly and it's always clean! There are a couple of projects going on... More

I visited with some college friends, but this is a great place to go with people of all ages. So much to see and do! There are some fun interactive things you can do there, like feeding the giraffes

Nice zoo. We have a membership, so it is nice to go visit for a couple hours to see part of the zoo then return at a later date to see more.

Each year we get a family membership to The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, it is very reasonably priced. If you are visiting Fort Wayne for the day, it is a great place to spend several hours. There are many exhibits to visit and fun little rides all for a pretty low cost. This year there is a new entrance to... More

We have visited the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo twice in the last year, both times taking our grand kids. We enjoyed it very much and they loved it! It is thoughtfully laid out so that you can see many of the animals, take breaks both in the sun and shade, and pickup water or snacks as needed. The animal exhibits... More

Had a couple hours of down town in Fort Wayne, so my 18 year old and I stopped at the zoo. Laid out very well. Easy walking distance between animal enclosures. Lots of places to get a cool drink on a hot day. They were adding on a "barrier reef" building when we were there. We did get to see... More

We have a membership at the Detroit Zoo which we like a lot, have been to the Toledo Zoo several times and on our way to Indianapolis we stopped at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. This zoo is so well laid out and largely shaded which is really nice with little ones.

I'll be honest, I read all the great press about this place, but didn't have high expectations since it's not in a major city. We are from Chicago and have 2 zoos near us. We have also been to the Cleveland and Akron zoos. HOWEVER, I would make the drive from Chicago to take my kids to this zoo again... More
