Blank Park Zoo's Reopening Strategy

Blank Park Zoo's COVID Strategy

  • Current capacity is around 50 percent with greater emphasis on reminding guests to social distance as capacity increases.
  • Masks: pursuant to the Mayor’s proclamation, masks are required indoors for ages two years and older AND outdoors when you are unable to distance from others.
  • Train and Carousel (closed for the winter) rides continue to operate at limited capacity.
  • Kids’ Kingdom experience is now open.
  • The Discovery Center is now open.  
  • Please follow the one-way path through Australia, Kids’ Kingdom, Jamaa Kwa Africa, and, the Discovery Center.
  • We have moved away from timed-tickets to general admission any day tickets. If possible, please pre-purchase tickets before arriving at Blank Park Zoo. Members DO NOT need to reserve a ticket in advance for daytime admission, but should have their membership card ready for entry.
  • When peak capacity occurs, admission may be delayed. Members and pre-purchased ticket holders will have priority admission.

Finally, we wanted to share these developments with you in advance to help you plan; however, since there are many aspects of the pandemic out of our control, we may have to make changes with little or no notice.

We want to thank you for being a supporter of Blank Park Zoo during this challenging time. As you can imagine, we have lost a significant amount of revenue during this crisis. The Zoo depends on operations to care for the animals at a cost of approximately $19,000 per day.  At this time, there is an urgent need, so please consider a donation to help with the care of the animals at YOUR Blank Park Zoo by clicking here.
