Yes, this is a small zoo. This time they had a new addition of a baby lemur that was riding on it's Moms back. The animals are well cared for and active.

We have visited several times and especially love being able to feed the animals with the feed provided in the quarter machines. There is a beautiful park attached with great swings, monkey bars, etc.

The Dodge City Zoo, located in a park south of the main drag in town, is small but packed with some fun animals. There is an walk-in aviary where we watched two peacocks "show" for the females.

For a small zoo it was excellent. The grounds and cages were clean. There was a good variety of animals that were well cared for.

This zoo is small with living habitats for the animals looking kinda grim, with a lot of concrete and bars. This doesn't include all of the animals, only about 2/3rd of the exhibits. It is fun that that they added the aviary and that it's right next to the park! I would totally bring a bag of bread for the... More

A nice layout for a free zoo. Plenty to keep children occupied for a while at no cost. Well kept facilities and the animals seem to be well cared for.

We were very suprised with the Dodge City Zoo. It is small but well taken care of and the animals seem to be very happy and content. This is a small hidden gem!
