At this time, Como Park Zoo & Conservatory will be open as a one-way walking path from 10am – 4pm Monday through Thursday, and 10am -6pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You will enter through the gate near the Cafesjian Carousel and Como Town. The one-way path takes you through Como Zoo, the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and Garden Safari Gifts!

Como Park Zoo & Conservatory has been planning and working to reopen the Zoo & the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in a responsible manner. We collaborated with our colleagues at other zoos & botanical gardens across the country to develop best practices. We have learned — what has worked and what has not — from others that have had the opportunity to reopen. We believe we are in the best possible position to welcome you back in a safe and responsible way for not only for you, but for our staff, and animals.
We want to thank you for being a supporter of Como Park Zoo & Conservatory during this challenging time and we hope you have enjoyed the daily Como Live segments and the social media posts while we have been closed. As you can imagine, we have lost a significant amount of revenue during this pandemic. We depend on donations to care for the animals and plants. Please consider a donation to help with the care of the animals and plants by clicking HERE.
