This is a small exhibit at Riverside Park which is nice if you are already visiting the park. But it is not worth driving here just for this. This exhibits shows some of Kansas wildlife. There are a few animals in cages with signs, it's...More

Near the site of Wichita's original zoo in Riverside park, this small exhibit contains a good beginners lesson regarding animals native to our area.

I was a little confused about this exhibit. It's in the middle of a public park and many of the displays are empty. I wasn't sure if it was a rescue facility, a zoo, or what??? I saw no rangers or zoo keepers, or anyone...More

Far less animals now, much more park for the kids, water feature and small zoo are always fun. One of the best little parks in the city.

Totally unexpected. What's taking a bike ride through the park when we stumbled upon this little miniature zoo. A small water feature in front and multiple animal cages mostly housing native species.

Not much to see and it took us nearly an hour to find a way into the park as every entrance and street was barricaded when we were there. If you're spending time in the park it's worth a few minutes stop, otherwise not worth...More
