Now accepting registration for school year 2023-2024. 

Current Crowd Meter

Closed to Groups: 
Moderate (heavy traffic, limited parking): March 12, March 28, April 12, April 19, May 3

What to expect seasonally: 


Fall is a wonderful time to visit, with lighter crowds and animals enjoying cooling off from the summer temperatures. In mid-to-late October, the zoo is decorated for our popular Boo in the Zoo Halloween event. 


Does your group have spring fever? During peak field trip season (April and May), Thursdays and Fridays are the busiest days, so the earlier in the week you come, the lighter the crowds will be.

What to bring: 

  • Light jackets/rain gear (if necessary)
  • Sunglasses/sunscreen
  • Water
  • Light snacks (for inside the zoo)
  • Lunches (for lunch in Cleveland Park)
  • Tarp/blanket for a picnic in the park

Reserve a Cleveland Park Shelter
