“over 200 acres, 1000+ animals”

Located in the historic and beautiful SwopePark, the Kansas City Zoo's 202 acres are nestled inside valleys and rolling hills and is home to more than 1,000 animals. In 1896, Thomas Swope donated 1,334 acres to the city of Kansas City, Missouri for use as a public park. With property acquisitions made over the years, the park has over 1,805 acres and is one of the largest city parks in the United States. It includes picnic areas, an outdoor theatre - Starlight Theatre, two golf courses, swimming and fishing. The Zoo is divided into several sections: Australia; Tiger Trail (Asia); Tropics, an indoor rainforest; KidZone, which includes the Discovery Barn, Peek-A-Boo Tree and an Endangered Species Carousel; and a 100 acre-African Plains. The new Tropics, an indoor rainforest, opened in 2009 in the orignal Zoo building and polar bears returned in 2010.

I expected more out of the zoo... Drive to Omaha or St. Louis for an amazing zoo experience. The layout was one of the worst I have ever seen in a zoo. Read more
