Chill Out

Ready for summer fun?
(We thought so.)
Join animals around the Zoo 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 chats and the action-packed Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater show.
Climb, swing, slide
It's summer!
Then splash like an elephant in our sprayground, climb like a gibbon or roll like a walrus in the playground. And don't forget those treats at the cafe! Happy summer!
