Enjoy your lunch at the Zoo!

Picnic tables, available on a first-come, first-served basis, are located outside the Zoo's main entrance. Lunches and coolers may be taken to the picnic areas, but may not be brought inside the Zoo.

We have two snack bars where you can purchase food and drinks during your visit to the Zoo. The main snack bar is open seven days a week and is located next to the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground. The snack bar adjacent to the KaBOOM! playground is open on weekends. The menu includes seasonal fruit, salads, sandwiches, hotdogs, hamburgers, assorted chips and cookies, frozen treats, fountain drinks, bottled water, Gatorade, and iced tea.
