Tautphaus Park Zoo closes early July 19

The city of Idaho Falls' Tautphaus Park Zoo will close early on July 19 so the Tautphaus Park Zoological Society can prepare the grounds for a fund-raising event. The last admission will be at 3 p.m. and the zoo will close at 4 p.m.

“We wanted to get the word out that the zoo will be closing early so guests can plan their visit accordingly,” said zoo superintendent Beth Rich. The staff realizes this early closing could be disappointing to guests, so to help ease any frustration the zoo is going to discount admission that day, $1 for adults and 50 cents for children and seniors. The group admission rate and ciity admission rate will stay the same.
