Picnic Area Rental

Daytime Options:
The picnic area offers covered seating for about 200 guests on a first-come, first-served basis. It is equipped with restrooms, soft drink vending machines, and small playground for young children. While you can stake out your area in the picnic shelter for your group, the shelter does remain available to the general public until 5:00 p.m.

Evening Options:
For a truly private event, the Picnic Area is available to rent ($250) from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Your guests may visit the Zoo and Wildlife Museum during the day, until closing at 5:00 p.m., then gather at the Picnic Area for your event!

We can cater a meal for your group at the picnic area, or you may carry in your own food. No grills or outside catering is allowed.

For more fun, you can add an Interactive Animal Encounter ($50) to any of your Group Visits. Depending on availability, you can meet a hedgehog, ferret, armadillo, sugar glider, small snake, millipedes, hissing cockroaches, and/or lizards.
