The Zoo will begin its Fall Operating Schedule on Saturday, Sept. 18. We will be open to visitors on Saturdays and Sundays from 10-4 for the remainder of the season. We will also open on Monday, Oct. 11 for the holiday.
Zoo School is a unique way for your home schooler or small group to participate in hands-on STEAM activities that meet Massachusetts state education standards. Each one-hour lesson has a different focus. Sign up for your favorite (or all of them!) here.
In light of the City of Springfield's new mask mandate and a rise in COVID cases in our city, our Board of Directors has opted to postpone Brew at The Zoo until spring. Please click here for more details regarding pre-purchased tickets.
As of Sept. 13, The Zoo in Forest Park updated its operating procedures to stay consistent with city and state regulations and CDC guidelines.
