Cool Zoo at Audubon Zoo, New Orleans,
Opens Saturday, March 31, 2012!

Cool Zoo, the wild and wet splash park at Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, opens for its second season on Saturday, March 31, 2012. Cool Zoo is one of the top water parks New Orleans has to offer. It is the hot spot for everyone to cool down at Audubon Zoo. Highlights include jumping water spouts, a huge alligator water slide, a spider monkey soaker, water-spitting snakes and more. There is shaded seating, family restrooms, a Snack N' Splash concession stand and The Cool Shop carrying a variety of summertime necessities.

The splash park offers three different splash zones with one area specifically for toddlers and younger kids. Cool Zoo is located between the Gottesman Family Endangered Species Carousel and Embraceable Zoo. Visitors may exit the splash park and visit all their favorite animals at the Zoo - their wristband will get them back into Cool Zoo throughout the day. What a great way to see Audubon Zoo on a warm spring or summer day!

Need a place to stow your items? Lockers are available for a small fee.

Admission: $7/non-members, $5/members
Cool Zoo admission is an additional purchase to your Zoo ticket.
Zoo admission is $16 for adults, $11 for children, and $13 for seniors 65+.

Pay One Price Wristband: $12/non-members, $9/members
