A flighted bird show will soon be coming to the El Paso Zoo! The El Paso Zoo is beginning construction on a wildlife amphitheater, which will host this new attraction with new animals.

Watch the Groundbreaking Ceremony! 

At the wildlife theater, Zoo guests will be able to discover the majesty of animals up close. The open theater has approximately 4,900 square feet of seating area for 300 visitors. This new venue will be able to provide shows, lectures, concerts and more, in addition to the flighted bird shows and animal encounters. Additionally, this project includes animal living spaces for reptiles, mammals, birds and invertebrates, including new animals, both for the shows and the education programs.
The wildlife amphitheater is among improvements to parks, libraries, museums, downtown, and the El Paso Zoo approved by voters as part of the 2012 Quality of Life Bond program. The El Paso Zoo was approved for $50 million to complete a 10-year master plan that is the framework for moving the Zoo forward in an exciting direction.

EL PASO, Texas – The El Paso Zoo is now constructing a one-of-a-kind venue inside the existing African savannah exhibit.
 
The multifunctional pavilion will offer a dining and dancing area within an animal exhibit. The open air concept will immerse zoo guests in an African Lodge experience as they gaze out the window walls overlooking the zebras. With 180-degree views into the Zoo’s expansive African savannah, guests can also enjoy watching with lions, giraffes, water fowl and other African species.
 
The event tent will be able to host plated dinners for 300 guests for a sit-down elegant night of dinners and dancing or 575 spectators for theater-style seating. Additional features include a public art installation, an outdoor cocktail and reception area, and an outdoor deck overlooking the savannah wetlands.

On the ballot was Question 1: “The issuance of $245,000 general obligation bonds for park, recreation, open space and zoo improvement …” which received an overwhelming 75 percent response in favor of approving the Quality of Life Bond Issue. The El Paso Zoo was approved for $50 million to complete the 10-year master plan that is the framework for moving the Zoo forward in an exciting direction.
