The Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department has temporarily closed the lower portion of Bruemmer Park Zoo to the public effective March 23 to help lessen the spread of COVID-19.
“We’ve noticed more people visiting the animals at the zoo since the closures of other public places have been ordered, and now, unfortunately, we need to take action also to prevent public gatherings of 10 or more people,” said Dave Myers, the department’s director. “During this closure, essential animal care will continue to be provided by our park staff on a daily basis, including meals, so please do not attempt to feed the animals.”
The rest of Bruemmer Park and the hiking trails remain open to the public at this time. Please remember no pets are allowed at the park.
