The San Francisco Zoo Has Re-Opened To Visitors

Quit monkeying around and make sure to go check up on your favorite animals!

Last week, the San Francisco Zoo reopened for visitors after the December shutdown that affected businesses all across California. You can now reserve a date and time online to visit the zoo at 50% capacity.

Once again, you can enjoy the Outback Trail, Grizzly Gulch, Penguin Island, and much more. Learn about these fascinating animals through informative exhibits and up-close views!

Visitors must reserve online and bring their email confirmation and ID or membership to enter the zoo. Social distancing will be enforced, pathways will follow the “rules of the road,” and face coverings are required for everyone over the age of 2. Take-out food and outdoor seating is available.

Payment may only be made by card or Apple and Google Pay, and hand sanitizing stations are placed throughout the park.


All outdoor animal areas are open, with the exception of several exhibits. Closed exhibits and window viewings include:

  • South American Tropical Rainforest and Aviary
  • Great Ape Passage Indoor Dayroom
  • Lion House Indoor Viewing is closed but you can see the big cats in their outdoor yards
  • California Conservation Corridor
  • Insect Zoo
  • Family Farm
  • Dentzel Carousel
  • Eleanor Friend Playground
  • Sculpture Learning Plaza

Be sure to reserve a spot to check out the San Francisco Zoo!
