Como Park Zoo is a nice choice for an inexpensive outing with out-of-town guests. Como Park has many picnic areas and playgrounds to add to the fun or visit Como Town Amusement Park. If you pick the right time in the summer, there is often live music and other activities. Check our Family Fun Calendar for special events. Parking lots fill up fast in the warmer months. It is smart to park at the fairgrounds and ride the Zoo Bus shuttle between May and August.

Family Fun Idea - Visit Como Park Zoo's Newest Snow Leopards

Como Zoo welcomed a mating pair of European-born snow leopards in March 2016. If all goes well, Moutig and Ayle could have kits as early as 2018. Even before they have kits, zoo keepers expect the cats to be fun to watch. The are a young and playful couple, particularly Moutig, the male (pictured below).
