Zoo Miami Is Closed Until Further Notice

While Miami-Dade County is under a state of emergency as it deals with the public health threat of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in keeping with the executive order from Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez to close all non-essential recreational facilities in an effort to ensure the safety of our community by minimizing opportunities for public interaction and direct contact, Zoo Miami is now closed until further notice.

Essential staff will continue to report to work to ensure that all of the animals are receiving the same quality care they have always received and that care will continue without interruption.

Unused Zoo Miami admission tickets that have already been purchased online or otherwise are valid one year from the date of purchase printed on the ticket.  For those who would like a refund, please email

Zoo Miami members will have their memberships adjusted so that no visit is lost from their 365 days of membership. 

Again, the above changes are implemented in an abundance of caution as the health and safety of residents and visitors are of the utmost importance. The operational changes and time periods described herein are subject to change. As such, you are encouraged to monitor the County’s website,

Zoo Miami is an entity of Miami-Dade County Parks and is strictly following all procedures and protocols as outlined through the Mayor’s office, which is providing real-time updates through its regular communication with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the Florida Department of Health.
