Blank Park Zoo Membership
The Blank Park Zoo is a highlighted destination for Des Moines. Our family visits several times a year, all year round. If you are a family with young children a Blank Park Zoo Membership is a smart investment for many reasons.
1. Member Monday
Every Monday you can ride the train for free. This is a big deal especially if you have train loving children. Also on Mondays, you are able to bring one free additional guest.
2. Unlimited Daytime Admission
This is obvious, but when you have young children this is very important. How many times have you gone somewhere, you arrive and after about an hour your child has a meltdown? Or it begins to rain? Or you have to leave for an emergency? You can leave, and come back. You can also go for an hour, play on the playground and leave without feeling like you are wasting money.
3. Special Events
The Blank Park Zoo hosts popular and fun events every year including Member Yoga, Story Time with the Easter Bunny, Endangered Species Night and many more! These special events are created and hosts for only membership holders.
4. Free Attendance to Fun Events
You can attend the Zoo Brew in the Summer, Adventure Days, Santa at the Zoo and other popular Blank Park Zoo events for free.
Receive special discounts such as 10% off at the WildThings Gift Shop, 10% off at Sarafi Grill, 20% off at Spaghetti Works, and more!
6. Visit Other Zoos Across the Country
Traveling and want to visit other zoos and aquariums across the country? As a Blank Park Zoo Member you receive free or reduced admission reciprocity to about 200 zoos and aquariums including the Omaha Zoo! The list is pretty extensive and this is an amazing perk if you travel a lot.
7. Discounted Camps + Classes
The Blank Park Zoo offers fun early education classes, Summer camp, Spring camps and more. If you have a Blank Park Zoo Membership you will receive discounts on classes and camps.
8. TRI Swap Days
Des Moines also has two other great places to visit, the Science Center of Iowa and Living History Farms. As a Blank Park Zoo Member, if you want to check these two places out they offer certain days a year where you can visit for free by showing your Blank Park Zoo Membership card. This is a great way to check out what else Des Moines has to offer and maybe sign-up for a TRI Membership!
