I have visited this zoo several times and each time I have a blast! The animals look happy, the staff is friendly and helpful and there is quite a selection of animals especially since it is a FREE small town zoo. I loved watching the binturong try to get her enrichment snack. I sat for a long time watching the... More

Everytime I visit, this zoo gets better and better! For being in a small town, they have several of my favorite large animals that I normally have to go to several zoos to see. They have a tiger, lions, grizzly bears, a black bear, leopards, and the list just goes on. The staff is friendly and I enjoy stopping in... More

This zoo is a gem found in small town Kansas. It is small but they are continuing to grow. We found the staff to be very nice and knowledgeable. It's a great place to spend a few hours with the family. The kicker is that it's FREE!!!!!!! If you're in Great Bend this zoo is a must see.

Considering that you're in a small to middle sized town in the middle of Kansas, this is a pretty good zoo! And it's free! I grew up in North Carolina, where the zoo is gigantic and the animals have large enclosures, and this is not that kind of zoo. But when compared against other city zoos, they do a nice... More

When I moved here I was shocked to find a zoo in the middle of downtown in a small town in Kansas let alone a free zoo. I feel in love instantly, the animals have such big personalities and the zoo keepers are tops. I joined the zoo society and later the zoo board and its a fantastic place to... More

Brit Spaugh Zoo in Great Bend, KS is a wonderful little free zoo. For my three children, ages 6 and under, it is the perfect size to keep them interested but also not tire them out. The zookeepers are all amazing and go out of their way to make your experience even better. It also is home to some lesser... More

You can browse at your leisure, Rest when you want, see lot's of different animals, best of all, it is on a donation basis. If you like it a lot, you can give a lot. If you don't like very much, well that's up to you.

My grandson and I visited. We needed to gt going so it was a quick visit. We both enjoyed it. The zoo is small which was nice as I have some difficulty walking. The animals looked well cared for. They had a nice little playground. If we had had more time the park adjoining looked like a place my grandson... More
