Zoo Makes Plans to Reopen

The NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is committed to providing an enjoyable, safe, family-friendly experience for all our guests. Although the Stay-at-Home order was recently lifted from the State of Wisconsin, the Zoo is following the recommendations of the Brown County Public Health Division to apply the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) guidelines for reopening.

Zoo staff are working hard to prepare the facility for guests, members, staff, and volunteers. Our reopening will follow a multi-phased plan that allows for gradual (and safe) increases in our offerings. We expect the NEW Zoo to be ready to reopen sometime in June. We will post updates to our social media pages and to our website as soon as an exact date of opening is determined.

During Phase 1 of our plan, the goal is for guests to have a “touchless” experience as much as possible. Guests will be encouraged to purchase admission tickets online prior to arrival, for either a morning, early afternoon, or late afternoon visit timeframe.  Ticket quantities will be limited to ensure social distancing is possible throughout the Zoo.  The Giraffe Feeding Experience will remain closed during Phase 1. We encourage you to watch this webpage here for additional details. A link to the ticket sales page, along with instructions for how members can plan for their visits, will be posted as soon as it’s ready.

The Adventure Park will not be opening during Phase 1 of our plan.

We cannot wait to “come out of our shells” and see you all again soon!
