ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Many residents are asking when the Alexandria Zoo will reopen. The park is currently closed because of the pandemic.

News Channel 5 reached out to the City of Alexandria for an update. We were told that there is no timeline. Mayor Jeff Hall said he wants to hold off until COVID numbers go down.

”The mayor’s concern is about being able to keep everything clean and the people distanced. That’s hard to do with a small staff and with the construction folks that are working. At this point, he prefers to err on the side of caution,” said Jim Smilie, Alexandria’s Special Projects Coordinator.
