Following the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory's June reopening, the Como Zoo has announced it will reopen next week.
Beginning July 29, visitors can request a free reservation from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which is required for entry. Up to 250 mask-wearing visitors at a time will be allowed.
Among Como Park Zoo & Conservatory's safety measures:
- A one-way walking path from Cleveland Court (near the Carousel) to the Charlotte Partridge Ordway Japanese Garden. From this path, visitors can go to the zoo or conservatory.
- Reservations are capped to four people, including infants and children
- All visitors and staff are required to wear face coverings
- Park-provided wheelchairs, strollers and drinking fountains will be unavailable.
- Como Town will have $13 time-slot reservations available at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday. "Some rides and attractions will be different due to added safety protocols," according to a press release.
- Children two years old or younger will not be allowed to go on rides, but must be included in the reservation count.
