With the start of the spring season just around the corner, The Greater Vancouver Zoo would like to welcome you to join us for Access Day on Monday, June 5th from 9:00am-7:00pm. On Access Day, we offer a $5.00 admission rate for people of all ages with developmental disabilities and free admission for their support staff. In order to be eligible for the discounted rate, advanced registration is required by completing the attached form no later than Friday, May 26th, 2017; forms submitted after this date will not be guaranteed registration to the event.
While at the Greater Vancouver Zoo you can take in our daily interpretive talks, which can be found on our website in the What-to-do section of the website. We are also planning a few special activities for Access Day participants this year so make sure to check out signs at the front entrance or the info booth when you arrive to find out more.
Due to the popularity of this special day, we will be drawing a lottery for seats on our Safari Express Miniature Train. If you are selected for the train, there will be an extra charge of $2.00 per passenger. Details are provided on the attached registration form but we welcome you to email us if you have any questions regarding this. Please note that we are unable to accommodate service dogs on Access Day. Arrangements for guests with service dogs would need to be scheduled for a separate day.
