Zoo Closure

As a precautionary measure and in an effort to protect the health and safety of staff, guests, volunteers, and animals, Cameron Park Zoo will be temporarily closing to the public to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

The Zoo will be closed to the public until further notice. While there have been no reported cases of infection on site, Cameron Park Zoo and the City of Waco is being proactive in trying to limit the community spread of the virus.

During this period of closure, our staff will continue to provide our animals with the highest quality of care and welfare. Cameron Park Zoo staff members will also be using this time to thoroughly clean all public spaces and exhibit areas.
