When are the train, carousel, playground, and splash pad open?
For your safety, all of Utah’s Hogle Zoo attractions and play areas are seasonal and weather dependent. The train and playground are closed when there is water, ice, or snow on the ground. The splash pad opens each year when the weather is consistently warm, and the carousel is open year-round based on daily attendance. Utah’s Hogle Zoo reserves the right to close or alter operations of any of these attractions at any time for any reason.
