Potter Park Zoo Is Open

Potter Park Zoo is open!   We’ve missed you!

We’re grateful for the many ways the Lansing community has supported the zoo over the past few months. We love seeing comments, questions, and participation on social media, but we’re excited to see you all in person at the zoo, too!

When guests arrive, the zoo experience will look a little different than before. Our commitment to the safety of our guests, staff, and animals has never been stronger.

Zoo staff have invested time to create and implement a plan that sets a new standard for safety and sanitation protocols that follow the Center for Disease Control and State guidelines, as well as the recommendations of the Ingham County Health Department.

We will be limiting how many guests can visit the zoo at one time. Timed entry tickets (reserved online before your visit) will be used to space our guest’s arrival times. This will allow ample room for household groups to social distance while exploring the zoo at their own pace.   Additional information and guidelines.
