Open Since 1923, Dickerson Park Zoo Has Delighted Generations Of Missourians

We all have family traditions, no matter where in the world we grow up. One of those traditions, arguably, for many Missourians is a trip to Dickerson Park Zoo. The cozy zoo promises everything you need for a fun day out with the family – animals with huge personalities, a playground for the kiddos, good food, and even a train ride.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
