Happy Hollow Park & Zoo connects people to nature through
Reduced hours of operation beginning Oct. 4
Happy Hollow Park & Zoo is committed to providing an exceptional visitor experience 100% of the time. To uphold this commitment, we have made the decision to reduce our hours of operation heading into the fall season. Like many other organizations and businesses, Happy Hollow is currently short-staffed and as a result is unable to maintain the full Happy Hollow experience at our current operating schedule of five days per week. Condensing our operations to fewer days per week will allow us to maintain the highest quality of service for our visitors on the days that we are open.
Beginning the week of Oct. 4, Happy Hollow’s new operating hours will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This schedule will continue through the fall and will be reevaluated as we approach the winter holidays. We appreciate the continued support from our members, donors and fans of all ages, and we look forward to continuing to connect people to nature through play.
Reservations are recommended for quick entry and to secure your visit on busy days.
We are sad to share that on Wednesday,?Nov. 3,?the Happy Hollow?animal?care team made the difficult decision to humanely euthanize?Kianto?the Jaguar.?He was 15 ? years old and will be remembered by the Happy Hollow community as a charismatic ambassador for his species. On Thursday, Nov. 4, Sophia the Jaguar received a follow-up exam and underwent a successful surgery to treat a pyometra (infection in the uterus).
Happy Hollow is excited to be able to welcome new volunteers for the first time since 2019! Two informational orientation sessions are coming up on Friday, Oct. 29 and Thursday, Nov. 4. Submit your application now for more information.
