Seniors 55 and older get free admission with photo ID. Parking fee still applies.
The Milwaukee County Zoo is for people of all ages. But on Sept. 1, anyone 55 and older will get a day designed just for them. Start by getting in free between 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Then stop by St. Camillus, located in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place. To prepare for the full day of activities, there will be a 5- to 10-minute stretch session and brief workout at 9:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m., designed specifically to energize seniors. A health and wellness fair will take place in the Peck Welcome Center. Then, head outside and grab a partner to go round and round the dance floor as live music fills the air. Entertainment is sponsored by Network Health. Or grab your lucky charm and daubers and listen for your numbers to be called in one of three bingo sessions.
