Cool Zoo

Cool Zoo

Cool Zoo is currently closed for the season.

Cool Zoo, a wild and wet splash park, is one of the top water parks New Orleans has to offer. It is the hot spot for kids to cool down at Audubon Zoo. Highlights include jumping water spouts, a huge alligator water slide, a spider monkey soaker, water-spitting snakes and more. There is also shaded seating, family restrooms, a Snack N' Splash concession stand and The Cool Shop carrying a variety of summertime necessities.

The splash park offers three different splash zones with one area specifically for toddlers and younger kids. Cool Zoo is located beside the Gottesman Family Endangered Species Carousel.

Need a place to stow your items? Lockers are available for a fee.
