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 29.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., seniors 62 and older and a caregiver will receive complimentary zoo admission and parking.
Senior Day will feature live music, tram tours, bingo, a senior resource area 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 senior citizens 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 Sept. 9, 2015.
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.
