We’re all hard at work preparing for opening day on April 11! After a long winter, zoo fans can finally look forward to visiting may of their favorites such as the lions, tigers, giraffes, rhinos, and cheetahs.
Due to the difficult winter and current weather, we are going to have limited operations at the zoo the first week. Certain food and retail venues will not be open the first weekend, and the skyfari will not be open until April 18. Some animals (including certain monkeys and birds) may need to stay indoors until the weather warms up, however anyone who purchases general admission at the zoo the opening week (April 11-17) will have their receipt stamped for another visit before June 30, 2015.*
*This offer cannot be applied to visitors using free passes, EARTH Memebrships, or Family Fun Paks. It DOES still apply if you purchased general admission ahead of time online.
This is a big year for us at Southwick’s, as it is the zoo’s 50th anniversary! We are planning on having a number of special events throught out the season. Visitors this season will notice construction going on within the zoo. We are currently in the process of building a brand new restaurant! It’s going to be an exciting season, so be sure to visit the zoo this year!
