Wright Park Zoo - Dodge City, Kansas
The Wright Park Zoo in Dodge City is one of the smallest zoos in Kansas. Portions of the zoo are old, but there is more room and better facilities for the animals than many WPA zoos.
The Friends of the Zoo (FOTZ) are working towards developing the west zoo. They recently built a walk through aviary as part of that developement. It is tucked in the northwest corner of the zoo where it might be missed. When we visited the Wright Park Zoo in July 2011, the birds in the aviary were not very exotic: ringneck doves; peafowl; bobwhite quail; and some domesticated Asian fowl.
Qeight Park Zoo is free and open 8 AM - 5 PM, 7 days a week. It will take only 30-45 minutes to see all of the zoo.
