Take an Art Walk
Wichita is the artistic center of the region, and our art doesn’t just hang on museum walls.

Continue walking down Douglas Avenue into downtown Wichita where 31 bronze sculptures have been placed along the sidewalks and urban parks. A girl playing hopscotch, a street musician and many small children at play are bronzed along the street.
Walk with the Animals
The Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita boasts 3,000 animals of nearly 400 species grouped geographically in exhibits that mimic their natural habitats. The Zoo’s newest exhibit features the Elephants of the Zambezi River Valley, and its newest members are two baby gorillas – Alika and C.C.
Take a walk (or a swim!) with the animals at Tanganyika Wildlife Park, just 15 minutes outside Wichita in Goddard, Kansas. This unique wildlife park offers visitors the chance to get face-to-face with some of the most rare and endangered species.
