Food & Shopping

The Zoo is free, but entry passes are required for all guests, including infants. All visitors ages 2 and older are required to wear a mask in all indoor spaces at the Zoo, regardless of their vaccination status. Fully vaccinated visitors do not need to wear a mask in outdoor areas. Beginning Jan. 22, visitors must show proof of vaccination to dine inside the Zoo's Mane Grill restaurant.

For everyone's safety, dining options and gift shops may be limited as the Zoo takes COVID-19 precautions. Visitors are welcome to bring their own food and snacks into the Zoo.

Shopping

Gift shops are located inside the Visitor Center, at Panda Plaza, and near the Great Cats exhibit. Outdoor gift kiosks can also be found throughout the park.

You may be asked to Round Up for Conservation at retail and restaurant locations around the Zoo. When you choose to Round Up for Conservation, your purchase is rounded up to the nearest dollar. That spare change directly funds animal care and wildlife conservation efforts.
