The Fort Rickey Children's Discovery Zoo is a special kind of zoo with a focus on children and fun. Everything we do here centers on the understanding that, for kids, passive observation of zoo animals is not enough. Children need to be engaged.
They need to use all their senses to explore, manipulate and discover. Although our focus is clearly on fun, we also have a higher goal as expressed in the following Statement of Philosophy.
Visit us on Facebook and Youtube for exciting stories, photos and videos of our animals.
We, at Fort Rickey, are committed to the belief that children, who have experienced the joy of kind and gentle interaction with animals, are more likely to become adults who care about wildlife and conservation.
Thank you for visiting our website. Enjoy your tour. We look forward to seeing you and your family at Fort Rickey this season.
