VISIT ON WEEKENDS!
Saturday 10 am to 4 pm ~ Sunday 11 am to 4 pm
Age 13 and up $8 ~ Children age 2-12 years $5 ~ Children under 2 years old are free. There is a 500 person limit in the park, so please reserve or purchase your tickets HERE.

Dippin Dots, Brick Street Pops, Hot Diggity Dog, and Pepsi available near the cafe. Socially distanced Endangered Species Carousel rides all day ($2 each). No coolers or outside food allowed.


Thanks to Jackson Area Federal Credit Union, families that reserve or purchase tickets for Saturday, October 31st, can play a game of I Spy Halloween during their visit with the animals! Activities will be included with the price of admission or with the use of an active Zoo membership.

There will be a fun quiz they can play on their smart device, and kids will receive a free carousel ride and a small bag of prepackaged treats. There are also some after-visit treats included for parents, with coupons from local favorites like Broad Street Bakery, Sal & Mookie’s, Twisted Pretzel Northpark, and even a drawing for some gift cards from Brent’s Drugs!

Since we still have a cap on visitors in the park, that day’s admission will be split into 2 sessions: 500 guests in the morning (10 am to 12:30 pm), and 500 guests in the afternoon (1 pm to 3:30 pm). Tickets for Oct 31st will go up in the webstore the morning of Monday, October 26th.


On Saturday October 24th from 9 am to 2 pm, Zoo Area Progressive Partnership (ZAPP) will be doing a Capitol Street Clean Up for Make A Difference Day. Volunteers from all over the Jackson Metro are welcome to come out and help do beautification work along the corridor from I-220 to the Zoo entrance.
