Animal lovers looking to get out of the house to have some fun can continue to visit Tulsa Zoo, 6421 E 36th St N.

Zoo staff has taken precautions to help ensure a safe, fun experience for those who visit the park. It starts with advance ticket purchasing for a specific time, which allows zoo staff to better manage lines and crowds. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week with final entry at 3 p.m.

There are markings and signage throughout the park to encourage social distancing. Most buildings are open and include instructions before entering in specific doors. There are numerous hand sanitizers throughout the park. For more health and safety information, visit here

A new playground, slated to open this summer, remains closed due to the pandemic. The rain forest exhibit is also closed for repairs from storm damage.

On Friday, July 10, zoo-goers and some of the animals enjoyed a warm overcast morning that included rain.
