Facemask / Face Coverings are now required
Mask Policy Update
Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, as part of the City of St. Paul’s Parks & Recreation Department, follows the Executive Orders set upon by the Mayor of St. Paul, the guidance of the CDC, as well as the advice of public health experts on masking. Effective August 3, Como Park Zoo & Conservatory requires that masks be worn outside and inside throughout the entire Como campus, including the zoo grounds, Visitor Center, Tropical Encounters, the Conservatory, Japanese Garden, and all gift shops. Visitors 3 years of age and older, whether vaccinated or not, must wear a well-fitting mask over their mouth and nose and while visiting Como.
Regulations are subject to change based on the latest advice from the Minnesota Department of Health.
We welcome healthy visitors!
Please check the health of all members of your group before leaving for the zoo and Conservatory and do not come if anyone is feeling ill.
If you feel you can not wear a mask and do not meet these guidelines, we ask that you visit once the Executive Order is lifted.
