KidZooU: Hamilton Family Children’s Zoo & Education Center is committed to ensuring that every child can participate in the exhibit. In addition to stroller and wheelchair access, we have worked tirelessly with our designers and other organizational partners to create an environment where all children can realize their potential. Guided by the Universal Design concept, the KidZooU experience utilizes a multisensory approach that creates a welcoming, enriching and inclusive experience connecting children with wildlife.

Every child—no matter their age, gender, background, ability—can make the world a better place for animals.
