We took my 3yr old here for her Birthday and there is plenty to see and do at this Zoo! We very much enjoyed this Zoo and will continue to come back and visit.

The animals seem a bit crowded, but it is getting better every year. Sad to see the "farm area" closed off.

Love to spend time sitting on the ground near Suzy the grandma chimpanzee. Miss being able to pet the animals in the "petting zoo."

The feedings were interesting to watch and they weren't crowded. Actually, it wasn't crowded at all. But the raccoon is an interesting animal to keep at the zoo. It is very small but reasonably priced.

I tend to be slightly reserved about any sort of animal captivity type places in light of some of the more negligent locations, however I did really like the Sunset Zoo. It was a great day trip with my husband (didn't actually take all day, but it was fun to linger), a lot to see and quite a lot learn,... More

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
