As statewide stay-at-home orders are lifted, the Charles Paddock Zoo welcomed back guests on Friday.

The zoo closed in mid-December due to the regional stay-at-home order. Zoo staff continued to educate and entertain visitors virtually, offering educational videos and virtual programs including field trips. Virtual services remain available to those who do not feel comfortable visiting the zoo in person.

Guests must wear a face covering.

The Charles Paddock Zoo is located next to Atascadero Lake Park at Highway 41 and Morro Road. It is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
