Zoo Pass members are able to enter the Zoo by coming to the front gate and showing their Zoo Pass card with an ID. If you have a caregiver on your Zoo Pass, the caregiver must present the letter issued by the Society, an ID and the Zoo Pass. Remember: The Zoo’s admission gates close 45 minutes prior to the Zoo’s posted closing time which is currently 3 p.m. Please note: In continuing to adhere to limited daily attendance capacity, some special events, such as Family Free Days, will require all visitors to make online reservations.
