Where are we going today?

Some zoos are HUGE, and some zoos are charming, and just the right size for those smaller animal encounters - and that is exactly what Wright Park Zoo is, and we love it!

Wright Park Zoo is the perfect place for those families who just want a relaxing, laid back day out. What started at just two black bear cubs now has turned into over 120 birds and mammals just waiting to be discovered!

At Dodge City Zoo, found in Wright Park, kids can come face to face with those mysterious and beautiful Siberian tigers, and really understand why conservation is so important. 

They can see icons of the USA with the longhorn cattle and the black bears, and even see giant buffalo in person!

Don't miss those cute and unusual emus, and say hi to their cougar, too! Those playful monkeys at Wright Park Zoo are always fun, as you can sit and relax as you are entertained as they play in front of you.

A charming animal filled day out in Wichita, where you can just go at your own pace, and enjoy what beautiful wildlife the world has to offer - and you don't have to leave the city to explore them!
