Zoo Plan

Closes 19 May 2017

Opened 11 Apr 2017


Hamilton Zoo is one of the city's most popular attractions, entertaining around 130,000 visitors each year.

Why We Are Consulting

As part of our commitment to providing the best visitor experience we can, we have developed a draft Hamilton Zoo Master Plan.

Completed in 2014, with the Siamang Gibbon exhibit (page 30 of the plan) already constructed and in use, the document looks ahead at opportunities to enhance our zoo and develop what we already have.

It is a long-term plan with a range of projects we could roll out between five and 15 years.

At this point, no funding has been allocated to the plan.  The Mayor and Councillors would consider funding the plan, or some of the initiatives included, as part of its 10-Year Plan process.
