No outside food or beverages or balloons are allowed on zoo grounds for the safety of our animals during in-season parties.

Scheduling birthday parties will be based on a first-come, first-served basis, and it is recommended that you inquire about a specific date and time four weeks in advance. Parties will not be extended past the end times (you are welcome to spend more time at the zoo on your own during in-season parties).

Party room is solely chosen by Binder Park Zoo. Party package payments are non-refundable and party times are firm. Parties occur regardless of weather conditions.

Children under 2 years of age have free admission into the zoo and are free but do not receive token. They are however included in the max number for spacing reasons.
