  • The Alaska Zoo 4731 O'Malley Road Anchorage, AK, 99507 United States (map)

Do you or someone you know have limited mobility? Would you like to tour the Alaska Zoo without worry?

Join us at Access Zoo on two Wednesdays in September, the 4th and the 11th. We also have Access Zoo Days in May (2019 dates were May 15th and 22nd). Access Zoo Days are from 11am to 3pm.

This event is all about providing motorized cart rides for those who arrive between 11am and 3pm on the event days and have limited mobility. You simply come to admissions, pay regular admission or use your annual membership, then take a tour in comfort on a golf cart or zoo utility vehicle. We do not charge the $20 cart fee for this event as we have a team of volunteers and carts on hand to give rides to all who need them. If you are looking to come for a cart ride outside of the Access Zoo Dates, visit our Mobility and Cart Rides page for information and a contact form.

The zoo partners with Anchorage Golf Course to have plenty of golf carts on hand and also with AARP volunteers who join our volunteers as drivers.

Please help us spread the word to those who might benefit from this service. We do limit these tours on event days to only those with limited mobility.
