Enjoy fall foliage at the Zoo!
Since the opening of Brookfield Zoo in 1934, the Chicago Zoological Society has held a leading international reputation for animal care and conservation, as well as providing a unique and natural experience for guests to enjoy via its many trees, flowers, and foliage. As an accredited arboretum, the zoo’s expansive walking trails offer visitors picturesque, tree-lined walks, and the zoo's historic Roosevelt Fountain is surrounded by an array of color, thanks to the bright yellows, reds and oranges of changing leaves during autumn. The zoo's vibrant and flourishing landscape includes both native and nonnative trees. Visitors can download resources to help them identify trees and guide their walk through the grounds.
Wear Your Costumes and Take Part in a Selfie Contest
Kids are encouraged to come decked out in costume and participate in an array of selfie contests by taking pictures in several giant photo frames throughout the park. All fall, the zoo will be giving away fun prizes to guests who snap a selfie at one of its selfie stations and share it on social media with the hashtag #BrookfieldZoo.
