The 9 acre Hutchinson Zoo in Hutchinson, Kansas has about 160 animals and takes about 45 minutes to thoroughly see without the doing the Prairie Thunder Railroad ride. The train operates on weekends and when school is not in session. It says a lot about the pride of Hutchinson, that the community maintains this zoo, when the spectacular Sedgwick County Zoo is only 40 miles away. The Hutchinson Zoo is currently expanding and is offering free admission until the expansion is complete.

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. 

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

The Hutchinson Zoo is now offering a electronic guides to the zoo. The zoo has 2 PDAs that are available to check out at the gift shop or material can be accessed from your web enabled phone at

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