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.

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. It is small enough that you can walk through quickly and large enough to feel like you saw a lot of animals. If... More

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!

Wright Park is an amazing resource in Dodge City. You must see Liberty Plaza - a moving tribute to 9-11 - all 3 sites , NYC, Washington DC and Shanksville, PA. And int he park is the zoo. We took a leisurely walk over to the zoo and realy enjoyed the animals and birds that are three. A baby buffalo,... More

Dodge City Zoo is a very small zoo and don't be fooled by the word small. This zoo is very good indeed and believe it or not it is absolutely free. One of the zoo attendants actually took time out to show us the bear and the cougar and also the tigers. They allowed him to stroke and pat them... More

For such a small town to have a zoo that has the animals it does is amazing. To see Tigers, Cougars, Bears, etc. Extremely clean
