First Aid Office
Located on the front plaza on the right side of the restroom building. Or contact any Zoo staff member for assistance. If you have an emergency situation, please seek immediate assistance from a Zoo staff member. Do not call 9-1-1. Our staff members are trained to quickly communicate critical details, locations and entry points to emergency personnel and expedite their assistance.
Moms may nurse in any public location at the Zoo. Kentucky law KRS 211.755 permits a mother to breastfeed her baby or express breastmilk in any public or private location. Municipalities are not permitted to enact an ordinance that prohibits or restricts breastfeeding in any public or private place. Individuals are prohibited from interfering with a mother breastfeeding in any location. A lactation station is available in the first aid office on the front plaza and in the Cub House at Snow Leopard Pass (when classes are not in session) if nursing mothers would prefer privacy.
Designed with families in mind, these special restrooms are located in Gorilla Forest, the Splash Park and also in the main restroom building on the front plaza.
Smoking — Designated Areas Only
Smoking (including E-cigarettes) is prohibited throughout the Zoo. Designated outdoor smoking areas may be found at the African Outpost back deck and behind the Splash Park area. See designated areas on your Zoo guide map. We appreciate your cooperation.
