We wanted to kick off 2018 with something big, that’s why we are excited to celebrate the New Year with a very special gift to the entire Bay Area. From now until January 31, we are pleased to be offering families FREE admission for all children age 14 and younger with adult paid admission. For many children, meeting a giraffe, bear or lion is the highlight of their year and we can’t think of a better way to start 2018 than with a Zoo visit.
