Scovill Zoo to Reopen Monday

The Scovill Zoo in Decatur is reopening Monday.


Friday morning on the WHOW Morning Show, Director Ken Frye told Regional Radio News they received word just late this week and are getting everything inside the zoo ready for guests to return. Some things inside the zoo, like train rides, will not be available yet and they are now doing ticket sales online.



Social distancing markers of about ten-feet will be marked off outside the zoo, however, once inside, guests can police themselves on social distancing. Frye indicates if their guests want to wear masks, they are encouraged to but that is not going to be a requirement. 



For the staff of the zoo, some last-minute projects will be finished and there will be some changes guests will notice as well. 


Frye points out, there will be no access to the petting zoo initially and they also have a baby penguin and four new cheetahs. 


Get tickets to the zoo at Scovillzoo.com.
