Tri-County Seniors Invited to Free Day at the Detroit Zoo


ROYAL OAK — Senior citizens living in Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties are invited to enjoy a day at the Detroit Zoo on senior day, Sept. 3. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Seniors 62 and older and a caregiver will receive free admission, parking, and rides on the Tauber Family Railroad.

Senior day will also feature live music, tram tours, bingo, a senior resource area and zookeeper talks highlighting some of the zoo’s senior animal residents.

In addition, Blue Care Network of Michigan and the SilverSneakers Fitness program are pairing up to offer a free group exercise class, exercise demos and functional fitness assessments.

The fall Senior Day is one of two free days for tri-county seniors held annually at the Detroit Zoo in appreciation for voter approval in 2008 of a ballot proposal to fund the Zoo.
