Further discounts are offered to groups, with those booking a reservation seeing the lowest prices. For example, as of 2016, regular zoo admission for adults ages 15 to 64 is $17.75 per person. The per-person adult rate for a reserved group is $13.75, while a non-reserved group is $15.75 per person. Similar savings are seen in the child and senior categories.
Military member pricing also varies, with deep discounts for adults from age 15 to 64 and children ages 2 to 14. Group discounts do not apply to military members.
People taking out annual zoo memberships enjoy the largest discounts. Admission to the Oakland Zoo is free year-round, and reciprocal agreements with other zoos and aquariums provide discounted admission at more than 125 facilities. Parking at the Oakland Zoo is also free. Members also get advance notice and discount rates to special events at the zoo, such as the Walk in the Wild fundraiser held every June.Learn more about Geography
