Student drop of is outside of our front admissions gate. Buses can drop students off and then park in our overflow gravel parking lot. Buses are not allowed to park in the main parking lot. Have your students wait outside while the lead teacher proceeds to admissions to check your group in and pay. Once your lead teacher has paid, your group will be directed through the admissions gate.
During the month of May: please direct students to stay seated on the bus while the lead teacher proceeds to admissions to check in and pay. While the lead teacher is paying for your group, a Blank Park Zoo staff member will speak to your students about zoo safety and rules before directing them off of the bus and through the exit gate.
All chaperones who are being paid for by your school will receive a hand stamp before your group enters. Any adults without a hand stamp will not be allowed through the exit gate. Students do not need hand stamps.
Please do not take your groups through admissions.
