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.
