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.

Total dump even for a free zoo, the park next to it, a little Mexican girl peed all over the jungle Jim, the grandmother didn't even acknowledge it, my kids couldn't understand why we had to leave

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
