This is your welcome gateway to Oakland Zoo. Here you'll find our gift shop, Tuskers restaurant, and of course, the fabulous flamingos and spoonbills!
Formerly Flamingo Plaza, this area was renamed Parrott Plaza in 2021 in honor of former Oakland Zoo President and CEO Dr. Joel Parrott, who retired in 2021 after 37 years at the Zoo.
Open daily, Tusker's Grill is located just inside Parrott Plaza. A variety of food is served with outdoor seating available.
