Oregon Zoo Reopens to Daytime Visitors
January 24 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 14, 2021
After closing for more than a month following state guidelines to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Oregon Zoo has reopened in a limited fashion. The zoo is now open Fridays through Sundays, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with last entry at 1:30 p.m. ZooLights ends Jan. 10.
For daytime visitors, the following measures will be in place:
- Timed ticketing/limited attendance: All guests, including zoo members, must reserve their tickets online in advance. Tickets may be reserved/purchased via the zoo website.
- Masks/face coverings: Face coverings will be required throughout the zoo for zoo employees and for all guests over the age of 5. Guests ages 2-4 should wear masks if possible.
- Primarily outdoor experience: Guests will follow a one-way, mostly open-air path through the zoo’s 64-acre campus, with indoor and high-touch areas remaining closed. Carousel and train rides are not operating.
- Handwashing and sanitizing stations: Handwashing and sanitizing stations are located throughout the zoo.
