What is the smoking policy at the Zoo? At the Safari Park?

Smoking (including e-cigarettes) is not permitted anywhere on Zoo or Safari Park grounds or parking lots.  Zoo guests should know smoking is not permitted in Balboa Park. 

Guests who wish to smoke are welcome to have their hands stamped for same-day re-entry when leaving our grounds to smoke. Please keep your ticket! Safari Park guests should keep their parking receipts to avoid having to pay twice for same-day parking when leaving the parking lot for and returning from smoke breaks.
