Clearly going to have it's limitiations but all the same we had a great few hours here. Animals well looked after and lots of choice. It was a bit hot that day so some of them were a bit inactive though!

This is a small zoo, and that is to be expected in a small town. They did have a few big cats and birds, standard for almost every zoo. But for $4 a person there isn't too much to complain about.

This is a small zoo with a small admission fee. As a friend of the Topeka zoo, we were actually admitted for free, to our surprise. The zoo is nicely landscaped and has some nice animal exhibits. It was not crowded at all -- we felt like we were at our own private zoo. We had a great visit. I... More

Lots of things going on, lots of animals to see. Just driving through you wouldn't think there was such a great zoo there, and you do not believe there is until you visit.

My kids who were 11, 10 and 7 and I recently attended this zoo. We had a great time. My kids who have went to multiple zoo's said this was a really nice zoo. We really enjoyed getting getting to see the animals up close. The Chimpanzee's here were the best I have ever seen. We enjoyed seeing them in... More

Visiting family in this lovely town, so I ventured to a small wonder of Kansas. This zoo has a lot to offer, the price of admission is only $4 per person and I felt like I got my moneys worth. It is well kept, flowers and plants are healthy and wonderful to look at, I saw no trash during my... More

We've been going to the Sunset Zoo since I was a kid. Now that I have kids it's one of our favorite things to do when we're back home. It's small and inexpensive with plenty to see. Located in Manhattan Kansas in the heart of the Flint Hills. Worth the trip!

We stopped on a whim, and I'm glad we did, what an incredible place! It's small, but is a wonderful setting and a great way to view the animals. Great deal for the price!

Ok, I'm from South Florida where the Zoos are bigger and have a lot of animals so don't let this review sway you from going to the Zoo. Overall was a great place to go with the family. Specially with my the kid-o who has never seen must of the animals in real life. You can wall around and see... More

Stopped here while visiting a friend for the day. It was only $4 dollars to get in, so very budget friendly. The zoo was small and most of the animals were either sleeping or too far away to see. Some spots you were able to walk up close to the animals, which was nice. They even had an area where... More
