Spring has sprung and so have the flowers at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden!

Zoo Blooms, presented by Macy’s, is happening at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (3400 Vine Street Cincinnati) right now through Apr 30 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. For ticket options and to purchase online visit http://cincinnatizoo.org/plan-your-visit/tickets/.

Every spring, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden becomes the Cincinnati Botanical Garden & Zoo when it transforms into a magnificent explosion of color! As one of only two accredited botanical gardens in Ohio, the Cincinnati Zoo offers one of the largest tulip displays in the Midwest. Dubbed “Tulip Mania,” Zoo Blooms also features more than one million daffodils, hyacinths, flowering trees, shrubs and other spring bulbs exploding with color.

Look for bright yellow and white daffodils blooming throughout the park. Many varieties of red and yellow tulips are the first to bloom followed by the main bloom. More than 100,000 tulips provide every color you can imagine. Complementing the blooming bulbs are thousands of blooming trees and shrubs. This is just a sampling of the variety and beauty that can be found at the Zoo! Plan a visit and enjoy the abundant beauty in our Garden!

Don’t miss Tunes & Blooms, FREE concerts in the garden, from 6-8:30 p.m. every Thursday through Apr 26. Zoo admission after 5 p.m. for these events is FREE. Parking is $10.00.
