The Pumpkin Patch is a bit of extra fun at the Zoo in the Picnic Grove. Tickets to the Pumpkin Patch are $5 and include a pumpkin to take home, an edible craft to make at the Zoo, and a ride on the train or carousel.

It is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays in October (except during Zoo Boo). However, we're also opening it during the week October 16, 17, and 21, to make it easier for families to visit.

School groups can add the Pumpkin Patch to their visit Monday through Friday until October 25. If you're interested in scheduling your school class for the Pumpkin Patch, contact Kaitlynn Snowden at or (574) 235-7620.
