The Calgary Zoo is one of the greatest attractions in Calgary, no matter your age. Kids naturally love getting a peek at all the animals, Moms with kids in tow know that it’s a wonderful outing in the fresh air, and teens might discover a passion they never before realized. A family visit that includes a chance to explore the animal world, plus a picnic and a playground, is a guaranteed success!

A visit to the Calgary Zoo makes for a great day. It’s more than just fun . . . it’s also inspiring, educational, and an enjoyable way to spend the day outdoors! It’s the kind of place you can return to again and again, but paying repeatedly for daily admission can get pricey when you have kids. When you purchase an annual membership, however, the frequent trips to the zoo become easy and affordable for a day’s entertainment!

For one low annual price a zoo membership offers:

Amazing Experiences

The zoo is a great place to bring the family together and connect with nature. There’s nothing like seeing your child’s face light up from meeting their favourite animal!

Great Value

A zoo membership pays for itself in just two visits. Plus, zoo members enjoy many perks beyond unlimited admission. You’ll get special discounts with the zoo and its partners, access to exclusive member events, and more!

Less Stress

The Calgary Zoo is a big place! Take the stress out of trying to see it all in one day and go back whenever you want, all year long. If the kids get tired, there’s no pressure. Plus, the animals behave differently in different seasons and you won’t miss a thing with a membership!

Lots of Learning

The zoo is an incredible place to learn about wildlife for both adults and kids alike! Don’t miss the daily “Animal Snackers” or the opportunity to touch animal artifacts like skulls, bones, and fur!

Huge Variety

With over 900 different animals (including giant pandas!), six acres of botanical gardens, and a prehistoric dinosaur park, you’ll never run out of things to do at the zoo. Animal keeper talks, animal snackers, and tiger training run daily!

Special Events

The zoo is home to special events throughout the year: Penguin Walk, Easter Eggstravaganza, and more! You won’t miss a thing with a zoo membership and you’ll even get access to special members-only events. Members also get special discounts on events like the Panda Breakfast and Mother’s Day Brunch.

Familiar Surroundings

You’ll get comfortable with the zoo quickly, learning your favourite places to park, pick up snacks, or enjoy a picnic. You’ll also figure out the best time of day to visit your favourite animals! (Hippo feeding was always our favourite.)

A Membership You’ll Feel Good About

Your zoo membership is a purchase you’ll feel good about. Your kids will learn lots about the natural world and your membership fee goes towards a great cause: wildlife conservation! Your support helps the Calgary Zoo protect wildlife and wild places.
