Alexandria Zoo
Beginning Wednesday, April 7, Alexandria Zoo will be open Wednesdays – Sundays, from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. with last entry at 3:30 p.m. 
Alexandria Zoo will continue to operate with a modified guest experience. The traffic flow remains a one-way trail with the number of guests allowed in the Zoo limited to eliminate crowding. All guests are asked to social distance by maintaining at least six feet from those outside your group.
Per Gov. John Bel Edward’s statewide face mask mandate, the face mask requirement remains in place for guests. In order to protect fellow guests, Zoo staff and the animals, all guests ages 8 and older are required to wear a face mask covering the nose, mouth and chin everywhere while on Zoo grounds. Some exclusions may apply, such as for those with special needs as defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and children less than 8 years old.
