The Penguin Walk is returning for its 11th year. During the winter months, the king penguin colony heads out on zoo grounds for a daily enrichment walk to keep their brains and bodies healthy and visitors get to experience the fun! This highly anticipated program allows visitors to get an up-close look at the group of king penguins as they explore, exercise and waddle their way through the zoo. This is a free-choice activity for the penguins and is subject to weather conditions* and animal inclination.
