Public Picnic Areas

Enjoy your lunch at the Zoo!

Picnic tables, available on a first-come, first-served basis, are located outside the Zoo's main entrance. Guests are welcome to bring their own food to the Zoo and enjoy it in this area. However, no outside food can be taken into the Zoo.

We ask all guests to clean up after themselves and utilize trash and recycling recepticles located throughout the picnic area. 

Please keep in mind that no grills of any kind are permitted and no outside alcoholic beverages are allowed on Zoo property. 

For the convenience of our Zoo guests, onsite concessions are availabe for purchase and include bbq sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, ice cream, snacks, soda, water, beer and more. Concessions are located next to the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground and are open daily from 10:30 AM to 4:45 PM. .

The snack bar adjacent to the KaBOOM! playground is open seasonally on weekends.
