SPECIAL DISCOUNTS

Winter Wonder Days | January & February: It may be cold and even snowy, but it is the perfect weather to see animals outside enjoying nature’s cooler temperatures. Visit the Zoo and enjoy half-price admission through the end of February! Discount applied to tickets purchased at Zoo's admissions gate only.

Military: All active and retired military veterans who show a valid military ID plus another form of identification (e.g., driver's license) receive a 50% discount on regular daytime Zoo admission. The half-price admission discount can be applied for up to four people in a party of immediate family members (including spouse and children). The spouse of a deployed military person will also receive the discount by showing appropriate identification.

First Saturday of the month is free for residents of the City of Providence: As a “thank you” to Providence residents whose tax money helps to support the Zoo, the first Saturday of every month is free (does not apply to residents of East or North Providence).  Proof of residency (e.g., utility bill with your name and address on it) must be shown at the ticket window along with a valid form of ID.
