Kids are FREE at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park in October

San Diego Zoo

I know where we will be in October!

In celebration of the organization’s fouding,  children 3 to 11 years old will receive free admission to the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in October.  Throughout the month, the Zoo and the Park are offering extra on-grounds presentations on the weekends, a coloring contest and all new online activities on the San Diego Zoo Kids Free site. 

The San Diego Zoo was founded in October 1916 and “Kids Free” honors this historic event.  Weekend visitors to the Zoo and the Park will experience even more kid-friendly activities with additional animal meet-and-greets, keeper talks and costumed character walk-arounds.  Kids Free is offered during the entire month of October.  The Zoo and the Park are open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, but opening weekend only, the Zoo will be open until 6:00 pm on October 1 and 2.  Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a paid adult during their visit to the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
