After a long drought (since February 5), you can, once again, visit the Denver Zoo at no cost. Monkey around with the family at the Denver Zoo for FREE on November 9 and 12. Explore Predator Ridge populated with lions and other carnivores, the indoor rainforest Tropical Discovery, the Toyota Elephant Passage, Bear Mountain and Primate Panorama.
The zoo is on “winter hours”, which means they’re open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Denver’s City Park (on 23rd Ave. between Colorado Blvd. and York St.) The grounds officially shut down at 5 p.m., so be sure you’re through the gates by 4 p.m.
Be warned, finding a parking spot can be a stampede, so consider using public transportation, carpooling, walking or biking. Trust us, you’ll be happier spending your time “talking to the animals” rather than circling the parking lot searching for an open spot. If you miss out, you’ll have to wait until 2019 for the next set of FREE Days.
