ROYAL OAK (WWJ) - Senior citizens living in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties are invited to enjoy a free day at the Detroit Zoo on Senior Day, Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Seniors 62 and older and a caregiver will receive complimentary admission and parking.

Senior Day will feature live music, tractor train tours, bingo and a senior resource area. The day’s activities will also include animal enrichment and zookeeper talks highlighting some of the zoo’s senior animal residents.

The spring Senior Day is one of two free days for tri-county seniors held annually at the Detroit Zoo in appreciation for voter approval in August 2008 of the ballot proposal to keep the zoo. A fall Senior Day will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013.

Situated on 125 acres of naturalistic habitats, the Detroit Zoo is located at the intersection of 10 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue, just off I-696, in Royal Oak. Regular admission is $14 for adults 15 to 61, $12 for senior citizens 62 and older, and $9 for children 2 to 14 (children under 2 are free).

For more information, call 248-541-5717 or visit www.detroitzoo.org.
