The Governor has moved up Stage 4 of his Back on Track Indiana plan to begin Friday, June 12th. So that means Columbian Park Zoo may officially open for the season at 50% capacity that day!

Hours will be 10:00am-5:30pm daily.

We ask that you understand that the Back on Track Indiana Plan is subject to change based on CDC guidance and other new information. 

Updated information will be announced here and on all of Columbian Park Zoo’s social media platforms.  We appreciate your patience and understanding in the midst of the current public health crisis, and look forward to welcoming you back to the Zoo as soon as possible.

The City of Lafayette will continue to monitor the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic and provide updates as available. Updates and resources are being posted regularly on the City’s social media channels and at
