The Fort Worth Zoo is open!
MAKE YOUR RESERVATION HERE
Here’s what you need to know:
In compliance with the executive order of Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley and the Tarrant County Commissioners Court, all Zoo staff and guests 10 years of age and older are required to wear a face covering (that cover both nose and mouth) to enter Zoo grounds.
- If you are consuming food or beverage, or can remain socially distant, masks may be temporarily removed.
- The requirement of a face covering does not apply if covering the nose and mouth poses a significant mental or physical health risk to the individual.
- Do your part! Help us keep everyone safe. Maintain social distance. Be mindful of other groups, especially around popular exhibits. Give each other at least 6 feet of space and mask up in these areas. We all have a personal responsibility to adhere to these guidelines.

Upon entering the Zoo this winter, you may feel like you're entering a construction zone. Don't let that stop you from having a great day at the Fort Worth Zoo! Click here to learn more about the changes happening at the Fort Worth Zoo.
Six Feet of Safety: Please practice social distancing and keep at least 6 feet of space between your party and other Zoo guests and staff.
Masks and Face Coverings: In compliance with the executive order of Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley and the Tarrant County Commissioners Court, all Zoo staff and guests 10 years of age and older are required to wear a face covering on Zoo grounds. If you are consuming food or beverage, or can remain socially distant, masks may be temporarily removed.
Handwashing: Please wash your hands often, especially after encountering high-touch areas. The Zoo provides restrooms and temporary handwashing stations throughout the park.
Stay Home: If you or someone in your group is feeling ill, or if you are high-risk and are uncomfortable in public groups, please stay home. We look forward to your visiting at a later date.
Changes to Our Operation:
Reservations Required: Everyone (except children 2 and younger) must have a reservation. All reservations must be made online before arriving at the Zoo – ticket booths will be closed. Reservations become active and available on the website 3 days prior to the day you visit.
Member Reservations: Members must also make reservations, but they are free. Multiple reservations can be made under one member ID; however, when entering the Zoo, each member ticket must be accompanied by a member ID.
Timed Entry: Choose the time block you want to enter the Zoo, then stay as long as you like. There will be no re-entry. Please ensure that you have everything with you before entering the Zoo.
Touchless Entry: Print your reservations at home, or have the barcode ready to scan from your mobile device. Each member ticket must be accompanied by a member ID.
Sanitation & Safety Protocols: A designated “Clean Team” will disinfect restrooms and high-touch areas on a schedule throughout the entire day. All Zoo staff will be wearing masks.
Limited Capacities: A limited number of people will be admitted each day. Restaurants, shops and attractions will operate at a limited capacity.
Safety Reminders: Signage throughout the Zoo will remind guests of the importance of social distancing, wearing masks and handwashing. Markers on the ground and at exhibits will indicate social distancing placement.
Discounts: Every Wednesday is still half-price admission. Due to the pandemic, we are unable to honor additional admission discounts at this time (this includes the AZA reciprocal membership program).
