Reopening Preparedness Plan

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is awaiting approval from the Governor and County of Riverside for when we can reopen. Zoos are currently in a later stage of reopening. 

We prioritize the health and safety of all guests, staff, volunteers, and animals. To that end, we would like to introduce the new Park rules and policies, which will be implemented immediately once we reopen.

Key Modifications: 

Please note that these precautions, modifications, and closures are temporary, but are subject to change at any time. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide the safest and best experience possible, and navigate state and local public health directives.
