Celebrating Our CommunitySenior Wednesdays

August 1, 2015

Zoo Visitors with Red PandaTo celebrate seniors and the contributions they make in our communities, the Virginia Zoo is proud to offer free admission every Wednesday from 10 am – 5 pm in August and September to seniors age 62 and older.

“Seniors have given so much,” said Greg Bockheim, the Zoo’s executive director. “This is our way to give them something interesting and fun in return.”

Starting on August 5th, seniors need to only bring a valid ID as proof of age. Grab your grandkids, your kids and your friends and head to the Zoo.

Free admission applies only to individuals age 62 and over. Other visitors will be charged regular Zoo admission; $11 for adults, $9 for children 2 to 11. Children under 2 receive free admission every day.

See you soon!
