Enjoy magical summer evenings at your zoo!
There just arenâ€™t enough options for families to dine al fresco and enjoy the balmy evenings, so Sunset at the Zoo is a great destination. The kids can expend some energy, and you all can eat and enjoy some live entertainment while exploring the zoo. Many animals aremore active at dusk! The train will be running, too â€“ taking a lovely loop through Washington Park.
