Sedgwick County Zoo Master Plan

Check out what’s in store for Your Future Zoo.

 

 

For 47 years, the Sedgwick County Zoo has worked to provide unforgettable experiences for our community, innovative and healthy habitats for animals, and conservation of species for future generations to be inspired.

Now, SCZ is looking toward the future to determine what the Zoo will look like over the next 25 years.

Your future Zoo will be a major multi-day destination and will include additional entertainment and venue options, opportunities for education-based play, and beautiful new habitats for the animals currently living at SCZ. The Zoo will continue to connect visitors with animals – teaching them how the Zoo cares for wildlife here and around the world, and inspire them to participate in positive conservation solutions at home.

 

 

The 25-year master plan will be implemented in phases.

Phase 1 will include:

  • Entry complex and visitor center
    • address the Zoo’s dramatic increase in annual visitors since its founding in 1971
  • Expanded Amur Leopard habitat
    • provide leopards with more space and enhance guest viewing options
  • CP Huntington electric train
    • offer guests a new way to see the Zoo, including behind-the-scenes areas

 

 

Your Future Zoo features enhanced guest experiences and unique venues.

Notable projects in subsequent phases include:

  • African lodge hotel and waterpark
  • Community events center
  • Stingray touch experience
  • Aquarium
  • Animal carousel
  • New concert stage and central plaza area
  • Aerial sky rides

The master plan was developed through a collaborative partnership between Sedgwick County Zoo, Zoo Advisors, and GLMV Zoos.
