Johnson City is playing center stage for a total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8th, 2023! For that day only, we are requiring our visitors to purchase a parking pass along with tickets through our website. We have a limited number of parking and we are expecting a massive influx of visitors, so don’t wait to reserve your spot!
The only days we close are Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Additionally, our hours remain the same year ‘round!
Our animals see ALL dogs as their natural predator, so this also includes service animals! The United States Department of Justice says: “At a zoo, service animals can be restricted from areas where the animals on display are the natural prey or natural predators of dogs, where the presence of a dog would be disruptive, causing the displayed animals to behave aggressively or become agitated.” Because of the nature of our park, our animals are on display from the moment you enter our gates. A dog of any form would cause distress to our animals, creating a dangerous environment for them and for you. You may read more about the restrictions of Service Animals at a zoo by clicking here.
