Coming Up

Pumpkin Loop

October 14 - 31, 2020

Join us for a stroll through crisp fallen leaves and golden lit canopies to wander the Pumpkin Loop and meet your favorite fall creatures. Break out your coziest autumn scarf and matching mask and find a pumpkin-perfect backdrop this season.

The zoo has placed pumpkins throughout the one-way-loop for guests to enjoy. Please be mindful of those around you and do not block the path while taking photos. Happy pumpkin spotting!

On October 24 and 25, little guests can expect a few sweet treats from zoo staff on your exit—and costumes are encouraged! As always, face coverings are required.

ALERT: We will be closing at 2:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day - Thursday, November 26, 2020.
