Masks Guidelines

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.
