Cool place, this one is.

They have put in some work on this place over the years, it's one of the places you should see if you are new to the area, or just need something to do.

The zoo is an excellent outing for all ages. Feeding the Giraffes was an awesome experience for the younger children.

Great Zoo! Our whole family enjoyed this trip. The lions and bears were especially entertaining. Would love to go again.

having been to zoo's all over the world I can honestly say that Wichita has a great medium sized zoo. The animals are beautiful and its obvious there is a lot of help from the community to continue to improve and make this zoo better every year.

I have gone here several times be it to see all the animals, take in a car show on fathers day, take kids trick-o-treating or support the zoo at zoobilee. Each experience has been wonderful. All the volunteers and staff are friendly. The zoo is kept clean and there are so many animals to see. You can easily spend 4-6... More

AMAZING - we drove to Wichita from Hutchinson, it's about 45 minutes away. This zoo is amazing, it is very large and will take you probably 3 hours roughly to walk the entire park and see all the animals. We were there for 4 hours, 40 min of which were spent watching the gorillas playing around. They do feedings throughout... More

Took a group of tweens/teens to the zoo. Had a great time and was really impressed with the exhibits. I thought it was a bit pricey when we arrived, but after seeing it felt that it was worth the price of admission. Feeding the giraffes was a highlight.

We just spent the afternoon at one of the best midsize zoo's in the US. We have been to the Brookfield Zoo in the Chicago area, animal refuges in Costa Rica and of course the San Diego, but this one was refreshingly different. There were animal feeding stations (the giraffe is the best), netted areas with the animals walking amongst... More

I am a native of Wichita, so slightly biased :) I have been to the SCZ multiple times over the years, including volunteering and inernships where I saw behind the scenes activities. Hands down, we have the best zoo in the region. I have been to OKC, KC, Wyoming, SanDiego Zoo, etc, and we have the best exhibits, keepers, entertainment,... More
