SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Zoo will be closed on Sunday, Nov. 7, for a private event.

San Antonio Zoo members received an email on Wednesday stating that the zoo would be closed for the second half of the weekend.

Zoo officials also posted the update to the zoo’s Facebook page Thursday morning but noted that the Kiddie Park will still be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the zoo train will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“San Antonio Zoo offers private events before, during, and after regular zoo operating hours, including the option to reserve the entire zoo for the day. The zoo has hosted private events for companies large and small, organizations, groups, and even individuals,” said spokesperson Jacob Downing. “This Sunday, an organization has reserved the entire zoo from 9 am to 5 pm as an employee appreciation celebration with their staff and families.”

Normal zoo hours will resume on Monday.
