What to Bring


Comfortable walking shoes are strongly recommended.  While the Zoo provides transportation to strategic locations inside the Park,  the best way to experience the Zoo is by walking.  The Park includes five miles of tree-lined trails.   

Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately because you will be outside for the majority of your visit.  Bring an umbrella or rain jacket in case it rains (as an outdoor facility, we do not issue rain checks or refunds).  Sunscreen and hats are a good idea for hot days.   You can also purchase inexpensive rain jackets, ponchos, sunscreen and hats in our gift shops

Credit cards,  debit cards, Zoo gift cards and cash are accepted. 

Camera and video cameras are encouraged to photograph the amazing wildlife!

Binoculars come in handy at some habitats like the Aviary, Prairie and Watani Grasslands Reserve.

Specific medical supplies (e.g. insulin for diabetics) for special needs.  If you have a medical condition that requires that you keep a cooler, you may bring it into the Park.  The admissions staff will inspect the cooler and identify it for medical purposes.

Infant care supplies such as diapers, formula and strollers are encouraged;  however, you can rent single and double strollers, manual wheelchairs and electric mobility vehicles in the North America Plaza & the Akiba Market.  All rentals are based on a first come, first serve basis.  Sorry, we do not take reservations.
