Cool Zoo Here! & We’re Open Later!

Cool Zoo Splash hop

I’m splashing, I’m dancing, I’m slidin’ and ridin’! Oh yes, Audubon Zoo is going to be the place to be this summer. I know what you’re thinking, the zoo; this summer? Well yes, you heard me right. We’ve got the coolest new feature for the whole family to enjoy during the summer. Cool Zoo is the first of its kind in New Orleans and it’s right inside Audubon Zoo. It’s a splash park with all kinds of water toys and slides that everyone will enjoy. It’s loaded with fun water play features and 3 different splash zones. If you want a really big splash stand by the white alligator and watch the gigantic bucket fill to the rim with water and once it’s full, watch out! Because it’s all spilling out right on you! In the cool zoo area they have relaxing shaded seating and a concession stand with great snacks for the kids. Don’t worry if you forgot something at home, we got you covered! Our cool Cool Shop carries all the summer time essentials. My kids have thoroughly enjoyed splashing around in Cool Zoo and the summer is just getting started.  What’s even better is that now during the summer the zoo is going to stay open until 7pm! That’s even more time to enjoy this cool spot. With the longer hours you will be able to hop on the ZooTrain, get a thrill in Dinosaur Adventure, say hi to Panya and Jean at the Elephant exhibit, watch an animal presentation on Discovery Walk and there’s sooo much more to enjoy. I bet you’re thinking – well, what other fun could there be? Since we’ll be open late during the summer we thought we’d give you toe tapping music in the zoo on Sundays! Yep starting Sunday, June 5th we’ll have local bands entertaining visitors at the Capital One stage between 5 and 6pm! It’s our Sounds of Summer music series and we want you to come out and enjoy the music. It’s going to be a wild and wet summer - we’ve got a Cool Zoo here at Audubon!
