Connect. Inspire. Conserve.

Welcome to the 2019 season at Binder Park Zoo!

We re-open to the public on Wed, April 17th with daily hours of 10am-4pm through April 30th.

Starting May 1, hours of operation will change to M –F  9am-5pm, Sat 9am-6pm and Sun 11am-6pm.

Spring weather in Michigan can be very unpredictable. Please be aware that some animals like giraffe, require temperatures to be at least 55 degrees and sunny to be on exhibit. Other factors like rain and wind may also delay or prevent them from going on exhibit.

Check for updates by calling the zoo office at 269 979-1351 between 10:00am-4:00 pm.

If call volume is high you may need to leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible. Please understand that animals on/ off exhibit can change as quickly as the weather!

Our eleven African painted dog pups are in need of names. Here is a rare chance for you to name one of the Binder Park Zoo pack. That’s right – a donation of $1000 earns you the right to bestow a moniker on one of these four-footed, satellite-eared, tail-wagging wild little canines. Need some inspiration? Honor your favorite person or a beloved pet, an admired historical figure or pop culture icon. Name one after your business, team mascot or a product you make… the list can go on forever! But hurry, this opportunity is limited and first come, first serve – there are only eleven!
