    Yes. We have numerous grassy areas at the Peacock Pavilion for guest picnicking. These locations are held on a first come, first serve basis and require no reservations.
    Patrons of the Beastro, Cat Wok Café, Rocky Shores, and Oasis Plaza are welcome to eat at the designated seating within those locations.
  • Are pets allowed in the Zoo?
    No. Utah’s Hogle Zoo enforces a strict policy against admitting any pets onto Zoo grounds. This is to ensure the safety of highly sensitive animals in our Zoo collection. Exceptions are provided in the case of a Service Dog for people with disabilities. The owner must check-in at the Guest Service office to read and sign Utah’s Hogle Zoo Service Animal Agreement.

    Utah’s Hogle Zoo accepts cash, traveler’s checks, Visa, Master Card, Discover Card, and American Express.

The ATM’s are located within the Zootique gift shop, The Beastro, and in Rocky Shores. Look for the $ symbol on your Zoo Map.
  • Does the Zoo have wheelchairs available for rental?
    Yes. We have both manual and electric wheelchairs for rent, along with strollers and wagons. Due to the limited availability we are unable to reserve any of these items. Please see the Rentals page for pricing and more information.
