The 9 acre Hutchinson Zoo in Hutchinson, Kansas has about 160 animals and takes about 45 minutes to thoroughly see without doing the Prairie Thunder Railroad ride. The train operates on weekends and in summer when schools are not in session. Train Tickets are $3 for adults and $2 for under 12 or over 64. Under 2 is free with a paid adult.

Our favorite exhibits in the zoo are the raccoons and North American river otters. The raccoons were very aware and interested in the people looking at them. The otters were continuously active with one doing somersaults in the water, while the other would come across the pool and flip on its back to float away. A new river otter display opened in November 2020;

The prarie dog display is fun as well.

The Wildlife Aviary provides a nature walk through Kansas. From marsh to forest it features birds in free flight.

The Hutchinson Zoo provides free animal rehabilitation services to orphaned and injured native Kansas wildlife. 

It says a lot about the pride of the citizens of Hutchinson, that the community maintains this zoo, when the spectacular Sedgwick County Zoo is only 40 miles away.
