The City of Little Rock has rolled out new hours for the Little Rock Zoo. This winter, they will be cutting back on the days and hours that the zoo will be operating.
The Little Rock Zoo is closing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during November, December, January and February. These changes are effective immediately, according to a city news release.
In addition, the zoo’s winter hours will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The grounds will close at 4:30 p.m.
Officials cited city budget cuts as the reason for the schedule change. During the winter months, officials say, attendance is slower which will allow staff to complete maintenance work and other projects.
