New Roos at the Zoo

Be sure to hop on over to the Cincinnati Zoo and explore the new Roo Valley and more!

Roo Valley is now open at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (3400 Vine St., Cincinnati)! This Australian-themed area features two new animal attractions. Kangaroo Walkabout opened in mid-August; this 15,000-square-foot exhibit space allows guests to roam among the roos as they hop and play. African Penguin Point is also open.

The penguins have a new home that includes rocky surfaces and lots of water for swimming. In 2021, KangaKlimb will be added to complete Roo Valley. KangaKlimb is a ropes course that will feature more than 50 activities! Learn more about all of the exciting new additions at the zoo by visiting or by calling 513-281-4700.
