In this case, the name says it all – this district is full of adventure for the whole family. From the can’t-miss National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, to the rush of live horseracing at Remington Park, to visiting Oklahoma City’s wildest residents at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens, there’s plenty of fun for the young and young at heart.

Located in the southwest section of the Oklahoma City Zoo, Sanctuary Asia opened August 2018 and extends the Asian elephant herd’s existing habitat as well create new habitats for red pandas, Indian rhinos, langurs, Komodo dragons, Tanuki (raccoon dog) and cassowary birds. The expansion also includes a two-story restaurant with a view into the elephant, rhino and Komodo dragon habitats plus a splash zone in the courtyard for children to experience during the warmer months
