The Phoenix Zoo

The Phoenix Zoo is one of the nation’s largest privately owned, non-profit zoological parks, standing on 125 acres in Phoenix’s Papago Park. Over its 40 years in existence, the Zoo has never been given any federal or state funding.Approximately half of the Zoo’s acreage has been developed.

The Phoenix Zoo is home to approximately 1,300 animals including 200 endangered or threatened birds, mammals and reptiles from around the world. Each lives along one of four distinct trails:Tropics, Africa, Arizona and the Nina Mason Pulliam Children’s Trail. In the past five years, the Phoenix Zoo has introduced several new animal habitats and visitor amenities including the Wallaby Walkabout, Enchanted Forest, Leapin’ Lagoon water play area, as well as the new primate walk-through exhibit, Monkey Village.

The Phoenix Zoo is open every day, rain or shine (excluding December 25). Regular season hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call for summer hours and prices.
