When volunteers at Blackpool’s Stanley Park donated a 50 stone pumpkin to the elephants at the neighbouring zoo it soon became apparent that moving it wasn’t going to be an easy task!

28/10/2019

It’s been an exciting few days here at Blackpool Zoo as we’ve just welcomed the first male elephant in our 47-year history.

The health of our zoo family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent advice from Public Health England and the government, we have closed Blackpool Zoo at until further notice.

Please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for any other date in 2020 or we can provide a refund. Please send your booking details to tickets@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. We apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your patience.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo when we re-open.

Stay safe everyone.
