October is a big month at the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park—it’s Kids Free Month. From October 1 through 31, 2020 every child age 3 to 11 gets free admission when accompanied by a paying adult. It’s a popular event that lets kids "go wild" and connect with wildlife.
No more than 10 per adult. All children younger than 15 must be accompanied by a paid adult during their visit to the Zoo.
