The San Francisco Zoo sometimes offer ways to save, including a coupon for a free child ticket with one paid adult. And they also have a few free days for San Francisco locals coming up. Children under 3 years old always get in free. The Zoo also provides discounts for active military and the disabled. You’ll always find something new going on at the SF Zoo.
A favorite time to take kids is in the morning or late afternoon to watch the animal feedings. As Northern California’s largest zoological park and conservation center, the six-acre San Francisco Zoo features 245 different animal species in naturalistic settings.
Recent additions include a three-acre African Savanna (giraffe, zebra, ostrich), Koala Crossing, Gorilla Preserve, Lemur Forest, Penguin Island and the Australian WalkAbout. You can ride on the historic Little Puffer steam train and the beautifully restored Dentzel Carousel.
SF ZOO COUPON: The San Francisco Zoo coupon is valid for One FREE Child Admission with One Paid Adult Admission, available from the California Travel and Tourism Commission. EXPIRED for now. I’ll post the 2015 SF Zoo coupon when they make it available.
SF ZOO FREE DAYS: The San Francisco Zoo offers free admission to San Francisco residents on certain days of the year. Upcoming 2014 SF Zoo Resident Free Days are February 5, March 5, and April 9. Proof of San Francisco residency is required (show a valid driver’s license, a valid identification card or a utility bill with your name and address, along with a valid photo ID).
