Is the attraction appropriate for children?


Are stroller/wheelchair/locker/etc. rentals available? If so, what is the fee?

Wheelchairs are $15.00, single strollers are $10.00, and double strollers are $12.00. Available for rent on a first-come, first-served basis. All prices include a refundable deposit when the rental item is returned before the zoo closing.

Can I bring my camera?

Of course! The Phoenix Zoo encourages guests to take personal videos or still photographs while enjoying their Zoo visit. All images and videos taken by guests and patrons are free of charge so long as the photos are used for personal, non-commercial purposes. All photographs should be taken from designated guest viewing areas or within the boundaries related to special programs, engagements, etc.

How long do we need to see the entire zoo?

The Zoo includes approximately 2.5 miles of walking paths and is divided into four trails: Arizona, Africa, Tropics, and Children’s. Usually, the Africa and Tropics Trails take about an hour each, and the Arizona and Children’s Trails take about a half-hour each. We recommend approximately three hours to see the entire Zoo, depending on the size and ages of your group and how fast you walk. Because we create exhibits replicating the animals’ natural habitats, some animals can be challenging to see, and visitors may be required to spend more time observing.

Can I bring my own food/beverages? Coolers permitted?

You may bring coolers, ice chests, and your own food. Please no glass containers or alcoholic beverages.

Can I bring my pet?

No. The only animals allowed to accompany guests are trained and vaccinated service animals. Park Rangers are unable to kennel any personal pet and we do not recommend leaving any pet in an unattended vehicle.
