Can I bring food into the parks?

Yes! Guests are welcome to bring their own food. For the safety of park guests and wildlife in our care; no glass containers or alcohol are allowed on grounds, and no facilities are available for food storage. We do not offer dining options only small concession items; We do allow guests to exit and re-enter the Zoo should they choose to go dine off site. 

If you leave the park and want to return, you will need your hand stamped to re enter the facility.

Members may show their membership cards and valid photo ID to re-enter.

If you intend to leave the Zoo and return within the same day, you must re enter the Zoo before last entry at 4:30
