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.
