Can I have an event at the Zoo?

Absolutely! Just about anything you can imagine will be more memorable and unique if you have it at the zoo.

We feature a 7,000 sq ft covered pavilion that is available year round. It is ideal for groups from 6 to 600. A perfect venue for church groups, family reunions or company picnics. Whole day rentals start at $250 that includes private use of the pavilion, use of our tables, chairs and stage. Also included is a kitchenette, and bathrooms at the facility. For additional charges we can include zoo admission, boat rides, or after hour events. We can help you with everything else from jumper rentals to finding a caterer.

The area is fenced and gated so it is easy to have a safe and controlled event. Call us to find more information or to arrange a visit to our facilities. We also have an indoor meeting or party area that can accommodate groups to about 25 guests.
