Parque
“Topeka's zoo is in Gage Park, as well as a lovely rose garden, a train, and the Helen Hocker Theater, which has shows put on by young people. There is also a great swimming pool and an old fashioned carousel. The Bark Park has two separate areas for large and small dogs, and is popular with dog owners”

“In the heart of Gage Park in Topeka lies Topeka Zoo, just brimming with animals from all over the world just waiting for families to visit! Here, the creatures of the world come to Kansas, so kids can explore the weird and wonderful species as they learn all about them, and the conservation of those who are endangered.”
