Woodland Park Zoo is admitting all military personnel and emergency services providers free of charge on “Heroes Weekend,” Sept. 10-11, in honor of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The offer applies to all active and retired U.S. military, police, firefighters and emergency medical services personnel with valid service identification. And up to six of their guests will receive half-off admission.
Beginning Sept. 12, the zoo will make its regular military discount easier. Instead of having to purchase discounted tickets at military bases, active and retired U.S. military and their family members will receive $5 off admission at any zoo gate (must show military I.D.)
