Powell, OH – The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is offering free admission to all in honor of Presidents’ Day. On Monday, February 21, 2022, this special promotion, presented by Fifth Third Bank, will be available to all guests to enjoy the Zoo and see their favorite animal friends.

The free admission offer will be valid on February 21 during regular Zoo operating hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Standard parking fees ($10 per vehicle; free for Zoo members) will apply. Guests can also enjoy half-priced Zoo admission through March 11.

“Our Central Ohio community recognizes the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium’s important role in education, conservation, and offering a fun, safe place for families and friends to experience. We are proud to offer this special Presidents’ Day promotion as a way to show our gratitude and to help make sure we keep the Zoo accessible to all members of our community while we remain committed to our work in inspiring guests to join us in helping to make a difference for wildlife,” said Tom Schmid, President/CEO of the Columbus Zoo Family of Parks.

Open 363 days a year, the Columbus Zoo offers guests a variety of opportunities to view wildlife, even during the colder months. Many animals are still visible from the comfort of heated, indoor shelters, including Discovery Reef, Manatee Coast, Congo Expedition, the Reptile Building, the habitats at Vanishing Giants and the Naomi Coyle Dempsey Quest for Enlightenment Interpretive Center in the Asia Quest region, Jack Hanna’s Animal Encounters Village, and the Nocturnal Building in the Australia and the Islands region.

The winter is also a great time to view other animals that are fans of the cooler temperatures, such as the polar bears and Mexican wolves in the North America region, and sea lions in Adventure Cove.
