Today, August 4, the Little Rock Zoo is partnering with Coleman Dairy to celebrate the dairy’s 150th anniversary.
Today from 9am to 4pm, there will be $1.50 admission per person! Children one and under are admitted free. There will also be free parking all day.
The Little Rock Zoo has long been one of Arkansas’ great treasures. It all began modestly in 1926, with just two animals — an abandoned timber wolf and a circus-trained brown bear. Today, the Zoo has grown to include more than 725 animals representing 200+ species, many on the endangered list. The Zoo itself, has become one of the state’s greatest educational and conservation resources.
Many exotic worlds are yours to explore at the Little Rock Zoo. Experience the majesty of elephants and rhinos. Stick your neck out at the Giraffe exhibit. Marvel at the strength and beauty of lions, tigers and jaguars in our Big Cat Habitat. Monkey around at Spider Monkey or Lemur Islands. Or slither around to the Reptile House to go face-to-fang with a deadly reptile. And don’t forget to check-out the all new Lorikeet Landing exhibit where you can feed these beautiful birds nectar!
Visitors can also meet Maggie and Zazi, the new cheetahs as well as stop by the Laura P. Nichols Penguin Pointe.
If you need a break from the action, stop by Cafe Africa for a bite to eat, ride the Over-the-Jumps carousel or take a relaxing and scenic ride on the Civitan train.
Before you leave, stop by the Safari Trader Gift Shop, where you can find all sorts of ZOOVENIRS to remind you of your visit. Whenever you visit, chances are you’ll see something new and exciting. We look forward to seeing you at the Little Rock Zoo.
