Fort Wayne Children's Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • I love this zoo! It's definitely worth the membership if you live in the area. We go 20+ times a year. It is only open April through October, but it's open late Memorial Day through Labor Day. The evenings are the best times as the animals are more active and it's cooler and less busy. The great thing about the Fort Wayne Zoo is that most exhibits are stroller height so you don't have to keep getting your kids out to see, like the Indy zoo. Love, love, love my zoo!

  • Love this place. They keep improving exhibits every year. Do miss the snow leopards , cheetahs belt ride and all the huge aviaries. Really really miss the aviaries. Also miss the gazebos over the water in the main part and African exhibits. Was a nice place to eat a picnic lunch. But the new stuff is pretty awesome too. My kids love it.

  • This zoo is a mainstay in Fort Wayne. If you come here, try to make it here. The park is super clean, the staff are incredibly helpful and willing to actually give you incredible amounts of information about the animals at all the different options exhibits. Anyone under 18 is considered a child and is half price.

  • What a neat place! They have four areas to go to: The Indiana Farm, The Indonesian Rainforest, The Australian Outback, and the African Expedition. Plenty of animals to see! We easily spent four hours here! It is nice for both children and adults! ... And you get to pet stingrays!

  • A great Zoo that's we can see in a few hours. My Grand kids love this zoo! Lots of great exhibits and a few rides too. They love riding the log ride, carousel, train, and sky ride! We took a few snacks in the zoo, then for lunch we ate at a shaded picnic table out by our car. We always have a great time here!
