We strongly recommend that guests purchase tickets online in advance. Those with online ticket will have the opportunity to skip a line and save money. 

Akron Zoo Members: Members do not need to reserve tickets online in advance. You must bring your digital membership card and photo ID when visiting. 

Masks Guidelines

Beginning Saturday, Aug. 21, those medically able to wear masks are asked to do so indoors while visiting at the Akron Zoo. Social distancing is strongly recommended throughout the entire park. 

Adjustments to our mask guidelines are based on guidance from Summit County Public Health, City of Akron and the CDC. The health and safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers and animals is our highest priority. Thank you for your assistance in making the Akron Zoo a safe location for all to enjoy.
