It’s officially named the “Kansas Wildlife Exhibit” but fondly known by Wichitans as the Riverside Park Zoo, and there’s a special event planned there this Friday evening, April 8, 2016.
“Little Zoo Day” will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Great Plains Nature Center staff will be on hand to talk about the animals that live in the exhibit. You’ll also be able to see some of the improvements that have been made recently and hear about future improvements.
The Kansas Wildlife Exhibit features over 25 species in 8 naturalistic cages. Animals include beavers, red fox, porcupine, mink, hawks, owls and more.
The exhibit is located in the central part of Riverside Park. The park’s address is 720 Nims, and the City of Wichita website has a map that should help you find it.
