Start the New Year with a free trip to the Zoo

Start the New Year with a free trip to the Zoo. Riverbanks’ Free Friday program begins this Friday, January 2 and continues through February 27. Each Friday during the months of January and February residents of Richland and Lexington counties will receive free admission to Riverbanks Zoo and Garden.

“The Free Fridays program is a way for Riverbanks to give thanks to the residents of Richland and Lexington counties for their support of the Zoo and Garden,” said Satch Krantz, executive director of Riverbanks Zoo and Garden.

Riverbanks Zoo is a special purpose district and receives funding each year from the taxpayers of Richland and Lexington counties. To qualify for free admission, Richland and Lexington county residents will be asked to show proof of residency with a valid ID or a copy of their property tax statement. All other visitors will be charged regular admission.

Riverbanks’ Zoo winter hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. January and February make for a great time to visit the Zoo because many of the animals are most active during the cooler winter months. There are also several indoor exhibits where guests can step in from the cold. These exhibits include: the Birdhouse at Riverbanks, Aquarium Reptile Complex, Gorilla Base Camp and Koala Knockabout.

What a cool way for the community to give back to the tax payers. I don't think we have anything like that here, but as a zoo member as often as we go, we are probably spending less than a $1 per person per visit.
