Tacoma Resident Free Day at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium
September 14, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Visitors who live at a Tacoma address will be admitted free on the Tacoma Resident Free Days throughout the year. Please bring proof of residency (see requirements on our website.) Each 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. The money has funded several new additions to the zoo over the past decade, including Kids’ Zone and Animal Avenue, the Asian Forest Sanctuary, Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater, animal hospital, new front gate, education center, gift shop and café.
