Get Healthy Walking Club

Norton Healthcare Prevention & Wellness, in partnership with the Louisville Zoo, is excited to announce that the Get Healthy Walking Club has resumed. The zoo has worked closely with the mayor’s office and the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health & Wellness regarding its reopening.

General walking club rules:

  • Enter the zoo between 8 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. You must exit by 9:30 a.m.
  • Present your membership card at the ticket window. You will not be admitted without your card. If you’ve lost your card, contact Norton Prevention & Wellness at (502) 899-6842 or prevention&wellness@nortonhealthcare.org for a replacement.
  • Entry into exhibit buildings is not allowed during walking club hours.

New safety guidelines are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • The zoo is operating on reduced capacity until further notice. Walking club members will be allowed in on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Guests will be asked to follow a one-way route through the zoo.
  • The zoo will clean and disinfect high-touch areas frequently.
  • All restrooms will be open with step-and-pull entry or touchless access.
  • Zoo staff and markers will be present to encourage social distancing.
  • Indoor exhibit areas are closed.

We’re happy you are making the most of one of the easiest, least expensive and most successful forms of exercise — walking! Keep checking back for important updates on our Get Healthy Walking Club Expo.
