The Penguin Walk is returning for its 11th year. During the winter months, the king penguin colony heads out on zoo grounds for a daily enrichment walk to keep their brains and bodies healthy and visitors get to experience the fun! This highly anticipated program allows visitors to get an up-close look at the group of king penguins as they explore, exercise and waddle their way through the zoo. This is a free-choice activity for the penguins and is subject to weather conditions* and animal inclination. 

Location: Penguin Plunge (outside)

When: January 13, 2023 to mid-March (weather permitting)

If the temperature warms up to or above +5ºC, drops to or below -25ºC, or if the winds are too excessive, the Penguin Walk will be cancelled for the safety of the penguins. Decisions on cancellation will be made daily, up to 10:00 a.m. Please check the zoo's website homepage and social media channels for any updates to the walk due to weather or animal inclination.

Ticket Price*: Included with daily admission or memberships; parking not included (except for Engage and Inspire members)
