Starting November 1, the vehicle entrance gate at Lee Richardson Zoo will implement new hours for vehicle admission. Cars will be able to enter from 10 AM until 4 PM, and vehicles entering by 4 PM will have until 5 PM to enjoy the zoo. Admission is $10 per car, with member vehicles admitted free with a current FOLRZ membership card. Zoo hours for pedestrians remain the same at 8 AM until 5 PM, and pedestrians may enter the zoo at either the 4th or 5th Street gates. The change in vehicle admission was implemented in order to comply with US Department of Agriculture regulations. USDA is the primary licensing agency for the zoo.
