General Visiting Guidelines
Courtesy and Safety: The zoo is a fun place
to be, especially when our guests respect
the Zoo and each other.
- For your safety, adults must closely
supervise children at all times.
- Do not climb, or cross, barrier fences.
Do not reach into cages. Stay on paths.
- For your health, and the health of our
animals, please wash hands before
and after contact. Hand washing
stations are located outside of the
Nursery and behind the People Food
Stand as well as at Rest Room facilities.
- We allow interaction only with certain
animals. If in doubt, ask our staff. No
one likes being picked on…please do
not chase, tease or yell at the animals.
- Please refrain from any and all handto-
mouth activities such as eating,
smoking, etc. while interacting with

food. Animal-safe food can be purchased
in the park.

Nursery, where you are free to walk with
the animals. Deer are wild animals. Though
tame, they never lose their wild nature and
you could startle them.

plan your visit. We have shows and
attractions throughout the day.

you will see amazing things! Try this: Sit
and watch the Ring Tailed Lemurs and
see how they interact with one another.
Do they snuggle? Do they groom one
another? Are they doing yoga?
- Ask our staff questions about the animals!
We don’t like sad goodbyes ... for the safety and enjoyment of all,
guests who do not abide by these guidelines may be asked to leave.
The animals and staff thank you for supporting our park.
