Animals, ice and loads of fun! Free with admission.
Ready for summer fun?
(We thought so.)
Join our polar bears, red wolves, tigers and more in an all-weekend celebration jam-packed with cool activities - literally! Watch our animals play with icy treats and summery enrichments.
Chill like an elephant
(or a tiger, or an otter)
Wander round to discover our animals up close through animal encounters, keeper talks and our action-packed Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater show.
Climb, swing, slide
Then splash like an elephant in our water playground, climb like a gibbon, roll like a walrus. And don't forget those treats at the cafe! Happy summer!
