There’s a lot to see and “zoo” at Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, and there’s no better time for a family outing than Saturday, May 7, when all mothers will receive half-off general admission.
In addition to everyday up-close experiences like touching stingrays and coming face-to-face with polar bears, the popular interactive Budgie Buddies exhibit is back for the season. These colorful Australian birds will fly right up to visitors’ hands to eat the seeds on special sticks that can be purchased for $1.50 ($1 for zoo members).
Plus, kids can hop aboard a camel for a ride that overlooks the Point Defiance Park Rose Garden, or take a spin on the antique carousel.
It’s a great weekend for quality family time, and Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium is the perfect place to share the day.
Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily through April 29.
Beginning April 30, hours will be extended to 5:00 p.m. daily.
That means visitors on Mother’s Day Weekend can enjoy an extra hour at the zoo. The Half-Price Moms’ Day discount is only good on May 7, the day before Mother’s Day.
