Cool off at Reid Park Zoo Summer Safari Nights! Fridays, starting May 24, relax in the cooler temperatures, experience up close encounters with our animal ambassadors, and enjoy games, crafts, and face painting for the kids. Live music when noted below. Beer and wine will be served at the Café in addition to non-alcoholic beverages.

Please note that you may or may not be able to view all of the Zoo animals.  Giraffes and rhino will not be on exhibit.   Other animals have access to their night houses but many choose to be outside in the cooler evenings.  Aviaries are closed.
