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.

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
