This was the cutest little zoo. And free. It took all of half and hour to “stroll” this zoo. Now I was here on a pretty cold day but if your in the area it’s right in the center of the park. If you have...More

Nice zoo for locals and for tourist to visit. I enjoy watching the animals so it was well worth the trip. This is a free zoo (donations are appritiated), but it is small. Still great for locals just to see a variety of animals and...More

Interesting animals but it's a little run down. They have bison, wolves, a cougar, bobcats, a black bear, and Siberian tigers.

A free zoo! So glad to have visited a zoo where the animals can actually be viewed. Loved it and will go again. Afterward the park right out the gate was a great energy user before hitting the road again.

Since it's a smaller zoo it's great to be closer to the animals. I always love seeing wolves and was impressed with the variety of animals and obvious dedication of the zoo staff. It's free, but I'm sure they appreciate if you leave a donation...More

We visited this zoo and was surprised to find out that it was free. They operate on donations. It had a bear, mountain lion, raccoons, birds, wolves, llamas, bison, monkeys, lemurs, and more. Nothing fancy, but a nice find while visiting this part of Kansas....More
