One of the top zoos in the United States, it is not so large as to make the visit daunting for young children. The variety of animals is great, with most being in natural habitats. They have an African veldt where you can take a tram from side to the other, and get up close to the giraffes and feed... More

A world class zoo in a small town atmosphere. You can spend a whole day, watching animals like the Orangutans or floating on a dug out past the kangaroos and black swan.

This zoo is rated in top ten in United States. It is so big you should take two days to show smaller children. To see entire zoo it takes at least six hours. They have just about every animal there is and water tanks for sea creatures. There are train rides, sky Ride, Water Log Ride, horseback ridding .

The zoo is a great combination of animal exhibits, activities, hiking, and generally fun for the whole family. It is divided into sections, so if you don't want to do the whole zoo, you can just do a section or two, and still have a great experience. The areas are: Africa Safari (with a giraffe feeding station $, open grasslands,... More

You will love our zoo!! It is small enough to do in a day and lots of fun activities for all ages!! Be sure and visit the Veldt where you can feed the giraffes and ride the ski lift. :-)

this is a great zoo. Not too big that its exhausting.The best time to go is as soon as its open, especially to feed the giraffes.

With Fort Wayne being accessible with a short drive from most mid-west locations, the Children's zoo is a must. Ranked high in zoo reviews - it will not disappoint. Wouldn't your kids love to feed a giraffe? Great place to visit and if you drive all this way and it's raining....take them to Science Central instead.

They keep adding different things all the time. I have many friends with kids that buy a "Family Pass" so they can go whenever they want.

Ft. Wayne's Children's Zoo is the ultimate place to take a family and spend a day. The zoo offers an up close look at a variety of animals and plenty of hands on experience for pre-teens and small children. The zoo is the perfect one tank trip for families fem Indiana, southern Michigan and northwestern Ohio.
