Comfort Areas

Restrooms are located by the concession stand and in the Education Center.
Shade trees and misted rest spots throughout the park provide comfort during the summer months.
Benches and picnic tables are located on grounds.

Service Animals

The Amarillo Zoo permits guests requiring service animals to enter the Zoo. Their permission to enter the Zoo is at the Zoo's discretion based on guidelines set forth by the ADA. Service animals are not pets; they are trained to perform specific tasks for their owner. Service animals entering the Zoo must remain on a leash or harness at all times and may not be left unattended. Guests are required to clean up all defecation from their service animals while at the Zoo.

Lost & Found

The zoo receives many lost items every week. If you lost an item at the zoo, call to report the item, the date you lost it and your telephone number. A zoo staff member will call you back if the item is found. After one month, unclaimed items are donated to Goodwill.

First Aid

There is no first aid station, but if you need any medical assistance you can notify any staff you may see.
