A Brookfield Zoo deal you can’t miss

Just in time before some of summer’s best exhibits end and the school bell rings, Brookfield Zoo is throwing open its gates and letting kids in free.

Free Kids’ Days, for kids 11 and under, are Monday-Wednesday, Aug. 13-15. In addition to free admission for kids, the zoo’s North Gate parking lot will feature interactive games and healthy eating tips at the Meijer Mobile Virtual Playground. Meijer dieticians also will share tips on nutritious school lunch planning.

Kids’ Days come at a perfect time in order to check out the zoo’s seasonal attractions before they close, including Butterflies!, Stingray Bay and the indoor section of Xtreme BUGS, Harry’s Big Adventure, featuring cockroach races. The huge animatronic bugs outside will remain through the end of October.

Brookfield Zoo is open from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. during Free Kids’ Day. Adult admission is $15, $10.50 for seniors 65 and over. Parking is $10. Visit czs.org for more information.
