MONTGOMERY, AL: MONTGOMERY ZOO – We apologize for getting everyone's hopes up; but due to recent COVID-19 case spikes, the City of Montgomery has decided to delay the opening of the Montgomery Zoo. SO, THE ZOO WILL NOT BE OPENING ON FRIDAY, MAY 15. Please stay tuned for updates as they are provided. Thank you for your continued support and patience.

Story as reported by WSFA NBC-12:  The Montgomery Zoo won’t open Friday, as originally planned, a City of Montgomery spokesperson confirmed Wednesday night.

Wednesday afternoon the city announced the zoo would reopen this week, but those plans have changed.

City of Montgomery Director of Public Information and External Affairs Michael Briddell said Mayor Steven Reed doesn’t think the data supports reopening the zoo.

“Right now we don’t feel that the numbers are where they need to be in order to reopen and have confidence that everyone could be safe,” Biddell said.

Briddell added that the mayor “is getting information from various sources and he wants to get things back to normal quickly but not if it could possibly compromise people’s health.”

The zoo has been closed for nearly two months due to COVID-19.
