Hamilton Zoo Draft Master Plan

A plan to enhance Hamilton Zoo is now available for community feedback.  Click here to go straight to the plan.

The Hamilton Zoo Master Plan is an extensive document which explores a range of options to develop the visitor experience at the popular visitor attraction.

Among the ideas included are overnight “glamping” experiences and changes which would see more direct interactions between visitors and animals.

The plan is not funded, and any projects which stem from it will need to be considered as part of Hamilton City Council’s 2018-2028 10-Year Plan deliberations.

Stephen Standley, Hamilton Zoo Director, says with the Council having endorsed the plan for consultation, members of the public can now have a say.

“Hamilton Zoo is owned by the people of the city, so they are a crucial stakeholder for us,” Mr Standley says.

“The plan sets out a direction of travel for our zoo over the next 10-15 years, and we want to know what people think.”

An online portal has been created for members of the public to provide feedback – hamilton.govt.nz/zooplan

Physical copies of the plan are also available at the zoo, together with a  feedback form which visitors  can complete.
