January 23, 2020
At the City Council meeting on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, council members approved an increase to general admission prices for the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. The Zoo’s last admission increase took effect in July 2017. Beginning Saturday, February 1, general adult admission will increase from $11 to $12, and admission for children ages 3–11 and seniors 65 and over will increase from $8 to $9. Parking will remain free. City Council also approved increases for ZOOfriends’ memberships also effective February 1, 2020. ZOOfriends enjoy unlimited Zoo admission for a year, plus many additional benefits and discounts.
Get back (and give back) to nature at the OKC Zoo. On Sunday, February 2, in exchange for free general admission, the Zoo is challenging guests to unplug from their mobile phones during the duration of their visit. Guests who feel up to the “Connect with Wildlife Challenge” can securely check-in their cell phones at the Zoo’s Guest Services office (located in the entry plaza) before exploring the park.
