SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Sacramento Zoo will open its doors and celebrate the Fourth of July with $10 admission for everyone.
For one day only, tickets are $10 for the zoo. Typically tickets are around $20, but they can vary with the zoo's plan-ahead ticket model.
“We welcome the entire community to take advantage of this discounted admission day to explore the zoo” said Zoo Director Jason Jacobs, “We open at 9 a.m., so a trip to the zoo on the Fourth of July is a great way to spend a cool morning and early afternoon.”
The zoo has added various species over the past two years such as the American alligator, squirrel monkey, cheetah, sloth, and a Galapagos tortoise that was actually added most recently.
This comes after a partnership between the Elk Grove City Council, the Sacramento Zoological Society, and Project Elevate. They plan on relocating the Sacramento Zoo from its historic and iconic location in Land Park to a 100-acre parcel of land, located off of Highway 99 in Elk Grove near Kammerer Road and Lotz Parkway.
However, the Sacramento Zoo won't be moving for at least five years, so make sure you plan it out and celebrate with avid zoo-goers!
The Sacramento Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and people can find tickets at the Sacramento Zoo's website.
