All Zoo guests must have a timed reservation. Beginning June 29, in accordance with the mayor’s executive order, Zoo guests are required to wear protective face masks in areas where social distancing may not be feasible. This includes all indoor areas (including restrooms), rides, and the walking path to the Africa section of the Zoo. Masks are required for guests 5 and up and strongly recommended for ages 2-4 with close adult supervision. Guests with disabilities or medical conditions that do not allow for face masks to be worn are exempt from this requirement.
To ensure the health of our guests, employees, and animals, we are taking precautions that follow local guidelines for encouraging physical distancing and reducing high-touch areas. Please be sure to read this entire page so you will know what to expect when you visit, as some areas and amenities are currently closed.
