The Park Comes Alive at Night!

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The summer is such an exciting time to visit the zoo. Among the variety of events that seem to be happening
every week, one of the most unique happens after dark. ZOO BY MOONLIGHT provides access to the park
after hours, leading to some really wonderful encounters with the animals.
This event takes place the night of the full moon each month through September. Those nights, the
park opens from 8 pm – 9:30 pm and you can see all of the nocturnal creatures out and about. When you’re
wandering the grounds by nothing more than the light of the moon (and maybe a flashlight), and you hear
the howls and sounds from all of the animals, it feels like you’re out in the wild with them!
Our first installment this year was an amazing hit, and a lot of that was thanks to our Clouded
Leopards. Aside from being nocturnal, they’re very elusive as it is, so it’s been rare catching sight of them.
But during this event, they were both out the entire night – guests got amazing looks at them jumping around
and climbing all night long; they were very curious. If there were no reason to attend this event other than
to see those two, it would be worth it. Special event pricing applies for this event: $4 for Members, $6 for
This event provides great access to the park and animals after normal hours. It’s already shaping up
to be a great summer – we can’t wait to see you out at the park with us!
