Summer Just Got a Little Sweeter

Take a bite out of summer while enjoying the cooler morning temperatures at Reid Park Zoo! Every Wednesday, July 4 through August 1 from 8:30-11: 30 am, the animals will receive a variety of watermelon enrichment. This SWEET event is FREE with general admission!

Guests can watch as animals enjoy cool watermelon popsicles, investigate puzzle feeders filled with slices of watermelon, and have fun while they smash a whole watermelon on habitat. Watermelon Eegees and slices will be available for purchase throughout the Zoo to help guests stay cool too!
