Naples Zoo Collier County Resident Appreciation Days ticket link is now open at www.napleszoo.org. Naples Zoo will welcome Collier County residents to the Zoo with free timed admission tickets Thursday, June 25th through Sunday, June 28th. These four free admission days are an effort to make up for the previously scheduled Collier County Resident Free Saturdays scheduled for June 6, 2020 and July 4, 2020. Collier County Resident Appreciation Days are proudly sponsored by Wintrust Banking Center. Free timed admission tickets can now be reserved at www.napleszoo.org.
Under normal circumstances, Naples Zoo offers all Collier County residents free admission on the first Saturday of every month as a tangible thank you for voting to save the Zoo in 2004. Due to federal government and CDC restrictions for safe social distancing, the Free Saturday program has been suspended until further notice. Naples Zoo typically sees anywhere from 3,000 to 6,000 guests in a single day on Free Saturday. In order to continue to show gratitude, Naples Zoo is offering four full days of free timed admission tickets for Collier County residents.
Naples Zoo also has new hours of operation from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Tickets can only be purchased or reserved online at napleszoo.org.
The Zoo experience has been modified to fully provide for the safety of guests, Zoo staff and the animal collection and comply with all federal, state and local requirements and recommendations for strict social distancing. The experience will be different, but it is still the same nationally accredited Zoo and garden offering a safe, outdoor experience for children and families in the Southwest Florida community.
Naples Zoo will manage admissions so that no more than 300-400 visitors are inside the Zoo at any one time. If and when needed, the Zoo will incrementally increase admissions as it is determined that visitors are appropriately distancing themselves.
