One of our favorite places to visit as a family is the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. There’s always something for everyone and who doesn’t like a day of fun in the sun, communing with nature and getting the chance to observe magnificent animals up close.
Take advantage of our cool and sunny Southern California weather and take a day trip to San Diego or make a weekend out of it! During the month of October, the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park offer free admission to all children 11 years old and younger. The San Diego Zoo was founded in October 1916 and Kids Free, honors this historic event.
Mission Fed is proud to present this annual event, which has been a tradition at the Zoo for 27 years and this is the fifth year the Safari Park has participated in the program.
To make a visit to the Zoo and Safari Park more interactive, families can pick up a list of “101 Things To Do” and check off activities during their visit.
Weekend visitors to Kids Free at the Zoo and Safari Park will experience even more kid-friendly activities with additional animal meet-and-greets, keeper talks, activity booths and costume character appearances. There’s even a chance to participate in the Camp Critters show at the Zoo or to “race” a cheetah at the Safari Park! For more details about Kids Free, please visit www.sandiegozoo.org
