The Columbus Zoo offers the opportunity to learn about thousands of animals and their habitats. It is one of the finest zoos in the country, and has a stellar international reputation. The zoo offers patrons chances to see and learn about the rare and endagered species it is helping to nurture and protect, like the manatee, and gorilla. The early summer is especially fun, with all the animal babies being born in spring and being displayed displayed for the first time. There are tons of special tours, classes, and workshops for kids and adults that are offered at a discount to members. Membership for a family is only $69, and for a little more you can add a guest or grandparent to your membership. Daily admission is only $9 adults/$5 kids, and a discount for seniors. Parking is $5 for non-members. Wednesdays are 1/2 off for Franklin County residents, but a photo ID with address is required. People travel a long way just to visit our zoo, and it is not to be missed whether you live here, or are just visiting.
