Heads Up: Kids are Free in October at both the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park!


Summer is winding down,and I’m finding it hard to believe that there is only one week left in August! Yikes! Time has flown by this summer.

I like to make sure I get this post in pretty early to make sure you can plan accordingly. During the month of October  The San Diego Zoo and The San Diego Zoofari Park offer free admission to kids 3 to 11! Each year, from October 1–31, in honor of the Zoo’s founding, children ages 3–11 are admitted free to the Zoo and Safari Park when accompanied by an adult. That means an entire family can head to either park and only mom and dad, or mom or dad have to pay!

It’s a great time to visit either the park. The weather cools down, the summer tourists are gone, and it creates an ideal situation to visit either park.  We are proud members of the zoo, and honestly October is my absolute favorite time to visit the zoo. It’s so nice to not be in a crowded place and really get to enjoy the park without sweating up a storm. It actually can get a little chilly in the late afternoon, so make sure to pack a light jacket.

If you’ve been wanting to visit the San Diego Zoo or Zoofari Park, make sure to take advantage of Kids Free in October! You can’t beat FREE!
