Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, Fort Wayne Reviews - Write a Review

  • A great place to go spend time alone, with a partner or friend and the entire family. There's a gift shop that's accessible without needing entrance into the zoo itself. There's a rainforest, African exhibit, Australian exhibit, Indiana farm exhibit and aquarium. If you need anymore information regarding pricing and more, visit their website. I strongly suggest getting the family zoo pass. It's affordable and you can go anytime during the season!

  • I love this zoo. It is very well taken care of. The zookeeepers are all very nice and informative. I love to come here for class work. They have great camps that they offer. They also have sleepovers which is new to me. Overall a wonderful zoo!

  • I have been going to the zoo for over 40 years. It is one of my favorite places to visit. I haven't been able to get there in the past few years and have to say I love the new Australia adventure area! It literally looks like a cute little town. Has a great feel and a wonderful look. Good job Fort Wayne Children's Zoo!!!

  • This is our family's favorite zoo! We drive about an hour and a half one way, but it is SO worth it! There are so many great exhibits and we love feeding the giraffes! The staff is very knowledgable about the exhibits too! We also love that by having a zoo membership at our local zoo we get half off at this one! Totally worth it!

  • My husband and I took our almost two years old son here and it was his first zoo experience. It was so worth it. We had a great time! The pony ride is awesome and we loved the giraffe feeding experience. Everyone is so friendly. We will definitely recommend this zoo to anyone with children.
