As summer arrives and temperatures rise, it is the perfect time to plan a visit to the Phoenix Zoo. Nestled in the heart of Arizona, this beloved zoo offers diverse wildlife and exciting exhibits for visitors of all ages. The Phoenix Zoo adjusts its summer hours to accommodate visitors' seasonal needs and preferences. We all know how summers in Arizona can be extremely hot. In response to the intense heat, the Phoenix Zoo modifies its operating hours to prioritize the well-being and comfort of the animals and the visitors.

By opening earlier in the morning and closing in the early afternoon, the zoo allows guests to enjoy the cooler hours when temperatures are more bearable. This schedule also aligns with the natural activity patterns of many animals, as they tend to be more active during the cooler morning hours.

Hours of operation 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM
