Monkey around with the family at the Denver Zoo for FREE in 2020. The Zoo always provides a wild time for families because there’s so much to do and see. Kids could watch the monkeys all day, right?

Please check The Zoo website in October for any information on free ticket availability for TBD days/times in November and December 2020. All tickets will be issued online only for a specific day and time, on a first come first serve basis.
The Zoo is on winter hours (on most of the FREE Days, except April 9 and October 20), which means they’re open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Denver’s City Park (on 23rd Ave. between Colorado Blvd. & York St.). On April 9 and October 20, the zoo opens at 9 a.m. The grounds officially shut down at 5 p.m., so be sure you’re through the gates by 4 p.m.
Be warned, parking can become a stampede, so consider using public transportation, carpooling, walking or biking. Trust us, you’ll be happier spending your experience the Zoo rather than circling (and circling and circling) the parking lot searching for an open spot.
If you don’t make it on one of the FREE Days, check out our post on ways to save money on admission.
