The Sedgwick County Zoo is actually quite impressive or a town our size. I have been to the Oklahoma City Zoo and it doesn't even compare to ours! The new elephant exhibit is amazing.

There are lots and lots of exhibits here. There are also a lot of ways to add an educational experience. All age groups will enjoy this zoo. There is also a play area for kids. They have a new elephant exhibit that opened in 2016 and are always making improvements

Here on a business trip, and I love the zoo, why not visit. When I arrived it was unseasonably warm and sunny just about 80 degrees. There was a long line for admission into the park.

We love going to this zoo with our family. As our family has grown over the years we cannot wait to take the newest members there to share of love of this zoo with them. It is always clean. The animals all seem healthy and happy.

This is one of the best zoos in the country! Very clean, spacious, well laid out design with nice variety of exhibits, plants and trees. Picnic tables and shady benches offer place to rest and enjoy snack or lunch. Can easily spend several hours enjoying the different habitats or can buy a zoo membership and make more frequent, shorter visits.... More

Maybe better in spring or summer. Maybe less than half the animals were out or on display. Very disappointing.
