Fort Wayne, Indiana

Rated one of the top ten zoos in the country by Parents magazine, Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is a must-see family attraction in the greater Fort Wayne area. What’s to love? The 40 acres of exhibits (well-suited for small legs!), the 1500 animals to view, the ongoing educational programs and conservation efforts of the park, and rides like the SkyFari and Zoo Train! With three distinct ‘lands’ plus an Indiana Farm and aquatic area, there’s more than enough to do, whether you stay for a few hours or all day.

Date last visited: May 2010.

Distance off the interstate: Just a couple minutes off I-69!

Hours and Admission Prices: Seasonal! Open daily 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. from April 24-Oct. 10, 2010. Prices are $13 for adults and $8 for children over age 1. (Be aware: rides are extra…you pay for them with tokens, carnival-style. Be ready to pay extra for those attractions.)

Bathrooms: Located on-site.
