In the heart of Gage Park in Topeka lies Topeka Zoo, just brimming with animals from all over the world just waiting for families to visit!
Here, the creatures of the world come to Kansas, so kids can explore the weird and wonderful species as they learn all about them, and the conservation of those who are endangered.
Topeka Zoo has a number of animal exhibits, and each one can give kids a different experience. They can explore the Waterbird Lagoon, with ponds, and native birds of all different colors.
They can try and spot those mountain lions and North American river otters all through the native Kansas grasses, or perhaps they want to watch those iconic black bears roam.
The tropical rainforest is a haven for wildlife, and at Topeka Zoo kids can feel like they are exploring the Amazon jungles as they watch the sloths, birds, bats and other species roam freely!
Don’t miss those beautiful jungle cats too, including the Sumartran Tigers! These are highly endangered, and is the perfect exhibit to really teach kids why we should be looking after our wildlife.
Those grand lions will give kids a glimpse into adventure on those African safaris, and those largest animals can be found in the Animals & Man exhibit – yep, we men those hippos and elephants! They can get pretty big!
Those adorable apes and Bornean orang-utans will just delight when you see their sweet faces, and even those nature loving kids can stroll among the landscaped gardens that pay tribute to flora native to Kansas.
With a fun Bug Zoo, and a fun interactive Children’s Zoo where kids can actually touch and feed domestic animals, Topeka Zoo really is geared up to give you that WILD day out in Kansas!
