Booking your party!

Zoo Parties are booked on a first-come, first-pay basis. Please email education@forestparkzoo.com to confirm availability and receive a contract. We request parties be booked and payment received at least two weeks prior to requested date. Cancellation of a party that has been paid in full will not be refunded but can be rescheduled within one year of the original party date. 

The Zoo requires a non-refundable deposit of $100 to confirm bookings. This deposit must be paid (by check, cash, or card) when the contract is submitted.

  • The party family may enter 30 minutes prior to reservation for preparation and host interaction.
  • To allow for proper sanitation and disinfection, we ask that you clear the party area within 15 minutes of your scheduled end time; if you do not, a $25 extended party fee will be assessed to your bill.

"Children's birthday parties hosted at Forest Park Zoo are well organized fun for all! We held my son and daughter's party at the zoo. The guests enjoyed the tour, met some animals, enjoyed cake and then fed animal friends with the grain cup provided. I highly recommend!" - Corrine G. | 2021
