Potter Park Zoo is open!

Visit our Safety Information page to prepare for your visit to the zoo. 

Masks are required at all times (may be removed when eating and drinking).

  • Indoor areas are closed (including the Feline & Primate House and Bird & Reptile House)
  • We are operating at a reduced capacity and limiting how many guests can visit the zoo at one time.
  • Timed entry tickets (purchased online before your visit) will be used to space our guest’s arrival times. This will allow ample room for household groups to social distance while exploring the zoo at their own pace. Even when guests are social distanced, masks are required.
