Henry Vilas Zoo Coupons, Savings and Zoo Park Description for 2020
In recent years lots of exciting exhibits have popped up at the zoo. We added the Children's Zoo in 1980 and the new penguin exhibit in 1986. In 1992 the Discovery Center/Herpetarium opened, marking the zoo's first hands-on educational facility with space for indoor classes.
Over the last eight years our ReZOOvenation project created the Discovering Primates Complex, Big Cat Complex and Visitor Center. The Zoo entrance, gift shop and concessions area have all been tastefully replaced. The last phase of ReZOOvenation was the Tropical Rain Forest Aviary, which opened to the public in June of 2003.
