New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
Houston weather is hot, but the Houston Zoo is cool. Even in the heat you can head to the Zoo for a relaxing day filled with fun, education, and amazing animals.
Our animals enjoy Chill Out-themed enrichment activities that keep them happy and cooled off. From ice-pops for our bears, to daily baths for our elephants, our animals will be enjoying Chill Out enrichment all week long.
Be sure to check the Daily Update on the Plan Your Day Kiosk when you arrive at the Zoo for a complete list of the day’s chilly happenings.

The Houston Zoo is filled with spaces to cool down and re-energize. If you need a break from the sun, you can always stop into one of the Zoo’s thirteen indoor, air-conditioned Chill Zones or splash into the Kathrine McGovern Water Play Park:
