Since Phoenix Zoo is mostly outdoors, remember to bring sunscreen, a hat, and water. If you forget water, there are water fountains all around plus you can purchase bottled water at concession stands. Parents with little ones might want to pack swimsuits so they can splash around in Yakulla Caverns or Leapin' Lagoon during spring and summer.
Phoenix Zoo welcomes your arrival but please abide by these simple rules. Do not yell at the animals, hit their exhibits or throw objects at them. Avoid climbing or crawling on fences and boundaries. You're allowed to bring food into the Zoo but it's important that you don't share it with the animals as they have special diets.
What types of exhibits can I expect to see at Phoenix Zoo?
Expect to see some pretty cool stuff. You'll go bananas at Monkey Village, America's only walk-through squirrel monkey exhibit. At the Petting Zoo, brushing the goats and communing with cows, horses, and sheep are some of the highlights. And you can touch cownose stingrays and even feed them at interactive Stingray Bay.
Does Phoenix Zoo have a gift shop?
It does, indeed, and it's called Desert Marketplace. Chock full of clothing, jewelry, hats, toys, artwork, stuffed animals, and books, the store is where you'll find the perfect souvenir to remember your visit or the perfect gift for that special someone back home.
