Getting to the Zoo & When You Arrive

Once You're Inside the Park

We are a Hilly Park!


The Flint Hills are certainly reflected in Sunset Zoo's terrain! While beautiful it does make for steep hills in some areas, please plan accordingly when visiting. The Zoo is wheelchair accessible, however inclines near the gibbon and tiger exhibits are steep.
