Visit the Wild Things Gift Shop for unique gifts, plus essentials like sunscreen, hats, and batteries.
The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo wishes to meet the needs of every visitor, so most areas of the zoo are stroller and wheelchair accessible. Please contact any zoo staff member if you need assistance.

Wheelchairs and strollers are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the main entrance. Quantities are limited. A fee or deposit is required.
