Lawn and Greenhouse Rentals

Lawn and Green House Rentals

These wonderful spaces within the zoo accommodate parties, picnics, weddings and more. In 2015, we are now offering a new South Lawn rental option for smaller parties and overflow for larger main lawn events. We are still offering our North Main Lawn, Greenhouse and a combination package. We have a covered stage area built on the side of the main lawn to accomodate live music, presentations and performances. Tent rentals are available from small to large sizes, information available upon request. Rental includes tables, chairs, set-up, parking, water access and power access. Zoo admission is included up to set numbers of people, with additional admissions available at a discounted rate.
