Thank you, voters
For your bond support.
The free day is offered as a thank you to Tacoma voters, who in 1999 approved a $35 million bond issue to pay for Zoo improvements such as Kids' Zone, and in 2014 a bond to build the new aquarium.Learn More
For Pierce County residents, too.
The Zoo also rewards Pierce County residents with discounted admission prices every day. That discount recognizes the support of Pierce County voters, who approved a sales tax in 2000 that contributes to Zoo operations.Buy tickets
