Children’s Farms


The Sedgwick County Zoo opened in 1971 with just two exhibits: the American Farm and the Asian Farm.

Now known as the Children’s Farm, this area also includes the African Farm and is one of the most popular exhibits at the Zoo. Visitors can find more than 40 different breeds of animals in this area, including karakul sheep, watusi cattle, and Nigerian dwarf goats.

This interactive area allows guests to pet and feed a variety of sheep and goats and get close to horses, chickens, cows and more. We hold a variety of special events in the Children’s Farm throughout the year, including a sheep shearing event in the spring. Visit our Events page for more information about these special events that are included with your admission.
