A Day at the Zoo - Picnic & Parade Through the Zoo!

  • Kansas City Zoo

    6800 Zoo Drive, Kansas City, MO (map)

    39.004081 -94.529852

  • We will be the group of fat & sassy people at the benches up near the Penguin Plaza/Carousel/Sea Lion Exhibit. Bring a sack lunch or can buy lunch there. If you get lost or are late, call/text Lana,[masked]
  • Okay, we have been talking about going to the zoo forever and a day, and are finally putting it on the calendar (since members have been messing with the editing themselves and confusing everyone)

    We will be gathering at the zoo on Saturday, April 27th between 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM at the tables up near the carousel and Sea Lion exhibit.  Bring a sack lunch for yourself, or there is a restaurant and vending area there.  We will then break up into two groups, either to head towards Africa or do the loop of the Tigers/Asia/Australia.

    Info about hours and ticket prices:|020&;~=

    $11.50 Adults ages 12 & above; $10.50 Seniors; $8.50 Children ages 3 -11; ages 2 and under are free 
    Zoological District (residents of Jackson and Clay Counties, MO) admission prices are:
    $5 Adults; $4.50 Seniors; $4 Children

    If we can get a group of more than 20 to RSVP *AND* attend, we can get a cheaper group rate, but we have to have people commit to show up if we want to achieve this. :)

    Bring a few extra bucks for riding the train ($2.50), the tram to Africa ($1.50) and any drinks or food you might want to purchase.

    It's also a good idea to wear comfortable walking shoes, socks, and bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, water, a snack (besides lunch), a camera, maybe an umbrella for the sun, a backpack.

    We will probably only aim to do 1/2 of the zoo, per group, because it really is a lot of ground to cover.

    Please feel free to invite others, as children, friends, and family are all welcome to join us on this outing with a fun, adventurous, friendly bunch!

    Thank you sooo much for setting us straight on the date for the outing at the zoo Lana. I'm hoping I will be able to join everyone. I love going to the zoo, and I haven't been in a long time. But the most important reason I want to go is because I want to meet everyone and become active in the group, which I have been unable to do since I joined. I hope the snow and cold weather will finally be over with by then.

    I revamped this very old suggestion for the zoo, so please check your RSVP's and see if it's current and if you really will attend this event on April 27th, 2013. Sorry about the confusion of the Clarette Club, I think members accidentally edited the old meetup.

    I've been wanting to visit the Zoo every since I have lived in
    Kansas City! I love to socialize while eating and who doesn't
    Like a picnic. Exercise is a plus too

    If you guys want to visit the zoo, might be a good idea to schedule before it snows ;-)
