Get a glimpse of 1,500 animals and 56 species from around the world at Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. The zoo spans 38 acres and contains four themed areas: the African Journey, Australian Adventure, Central Zoo, and Indonesian Rainforest. You can observe the creatures native to these biomes in the various exhibits throughout them. There are also several interactive exhibits, such as a trail where children can climb into a tree house, and a farm setting where kids can pet and play with cows, goats, donkeys, and more. Take a trip on the Sky Safari ride to get an aerial view of the zoo's landscape or hop on the Dugout Canoe Ride for a float down a canal.
