Zoo Brew is really fun, but make sure you get there early, the animals all go in around sunset

Go early and don't forget your I.D., no matter how old you are. Take a bag to carry all your goodies in. Had a great time and will definitely go again next year.

The animals were being put away right when we arrived (at 6:45) so we only got to see the lions and were pretty disappointed about not being able to see any other animals. I wish they put something on their website about what time they put the animals away because we would have tried to get there earlier had we known.

From Our Editors

Blank Park Zoo educates the public about the wonders of the wild by re-creating far-flung habitats and ecosystems that house more than 1,000 animals and 104 different species ranging from Siberian tigers to hissing cockroaches. Zookeepers lead chats about animals and offer conservation tips, while exhibits include hands-on feedings that allow humans to go face-to-face or nose-to-beak with hungry giraffes and parakeets. Recent new arrivals welcome curious kids to commiserate with the growing pains and early bedtimes of young wallabies, camels, and seal pups, setting a foundation for learning that may be continued in classes designed for those aged 6 months to 5 years.

In addition to raising awareness about the environment, Blank Park Zoo contributes to conservation efforts to preserve the future of native animals and their natural homes. The zoo participates in seven endangered-species breeding programs and donates a portion of admissions proceeds to several different wildlife initiatives.
