Parties, Rentals, Etc.

Party Packages

Perfect for birthdays, graduations, and more – these party packages are meant to be “full-service” packages. They include admission, cake, drinks, plus fun activities for all guests.  Learn more.

In-Zoo Room Rentals

If you’re not looking for a full-service party package, a Zoo Rental is another alternative. You can rent our Safari Clubhouse or our Education Classroom for up to 3 hours for $75 or for a full day for $150 (plus tax). You would be responsible for cleaning the room and returning it to its original state before you leave. Zoo Admission would apply to all your party guests.  Any food or dessert items brought to the zoo, delivered, or catered-in must be from a licensed baker, restaurant, or grocery store (in unopened packages). Home-made food items are not permitted into the zoo.  Full payment for the rental is due upon booking.  Contact our Education Coordinator to check for available dates or complete this form to submit your request.

Outdoor Space Rentals
