Columbus Day hours at Gladys Porter Zoo

The Gladys Porter Zoo will be open and welcoming guests on Friday, Oct. 9 to Monday, Oct. 12 for the Columbus Day holiday.

The zoo will be open the following hours:

Friday – 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday – 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday – 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Monday – 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The Zoo will still have limited capacity, so reservations are recommended for all guests, including Gladys Porter Zoo members.

Families visiting the zoo without reservations will be allowed as long as the time slot is not sold out. If the slot is full, guests will have to wait a few minutes until the next available time slot, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

All visitors ages six and up must wear face masks at all times. A one-way route around the Zoo is still in effect to better allow for social distancing.
