WELCOME BACK – We Missed You!

NOW OPEN DAILY 9:30am – 4:30pm

HENRY VILAS ZOO HAS RE-OPENED! MAIN GATE OPEN AT 9:30 A.M. AND LAST GUEST ENTRY AT 4:30 P.M. 



Due to COVID-19, there are some new guidelines guests need to follow to make sure everyone has a fun, safe time, including:

  • Enter at the main gate only by the parking lot on S. Randall Ave.
  • Follow the designated one-way path through the zoo.
  • Use our new hand sanitizer dispensers placed throughout the zoo.
  • Keep a safe distance from other people, and, of course, the animals!
  • All visitors (5+) are required to wear masks. If necessary, masks are available for purchase in our gift shop. If you forgot to bring your mask, you will be given a paper mask and asked to wear it.
  • Please respect the neighborhood by following all traffic/parking rules and disposing of trash properly.

For more information, please visit our FAQ page.

Thanks for your support!
