Plan Your Visit

Timed-entry ticket requirements remain in effect for non-members and must be prepurchased online. Current RWPZoo members do not need to reserve daytime zoo tickets in advance - just show your digital membership card and a photo ID at any ticket booth for entry on the day of your visit.

We have implemented enhanced protocols and procedures to help ensure the safety of guests, employees, volunteers and, of course, our animals. To learn more about our safety protocols and exhibit closures, please click below.
