The Zoo in Forest Park is no longer open on weekdays, but will remain open on weekends from 10-4 through the end of October.
Come say hello before we close for the season!
We are thrilled to announce the birth of our new Muntjac fawn, Marigold! Born at just 1.7 pounds, she is becoming more playful and curious each day.
Cheese is our free-range white leghorn rooster. He was hatched as part of a science experiment in a Springfield classroom and needed a permanent home, so he came to live here at The Zoo. He has a very friendly temperament and will often fall asleep in the arms of his keepers. Come visit Cheese at Spooky Safari on Saturday, October 28! He loves dressing up for Halloween.
Weekends: 10:00am to 4:00pm
