OKC Zoo News Releases

OKC ZOO’S POPULAR PARTNERSHIP WITH CURBSIDE CHRONICLE RETURNS

Take a double look at the September issue of the Curbside Chronicle for some wild findings! The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is excited to continue its annual partnership with the Curbside Chronicle and be highlighted in their current issue that includes a free general admission ticket to the OKC Zoo. Curbside Chronicle is Oklahoma's award-winning street paper created to provide both a voice and employment opportunities for people who are experiencing and at risk of homelessness. This special “OKC Zoo” issue of the magazine will be on sale beginning, Thursday, September 1, for a $2 suggested donation from Curbside vendors throughout the metro area.

Purchase your copy of Curbside to discover news about the Zoo’s animal family, events and programs plus, a full-size park map and a free general admission voucher good for one adult, child or senior admission. That’s not all, the magazine’s original cover art is inspired by the OKC Zoo’s critically endangered Sumatran tiger cubs, Luna and Bob, born July 2 at the Zoo. The tiger twins are growing by leaps and bounds and continue to hit important milestones including learning how to navigate their outdoor habitat. Zoo guests will be able to see tiger mom, Lola, and her cubs outside in their habitat at Cat Forest soon!

To redeem your Curbside Chronicle voucher for admission to the OKC Zoo present it at the Zoo’s ticket window upon arrival. Reservations are not required for entry. Vouchers valid through December 31, 2022.

Now through Friday, September 2, the Oklahoma City Zoo will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily with the last entry no later than 2 p.m. Regular park hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with the last entry at 4 p.m., resume Saturday, September 3.
