A member of the community

Woodland Park Zoo partners with more than 400 human service organizations who offer their clients or members a total of 70,000 complimentary passes each year. The Community Access Program does not directly serve individuals or families, and the human service organizations determine how they will distribute their passes. These agencies serve homeless shelters, food banks, senior centers and homes, minority programs, disabled and mental health facilities, low-income youth centers and more.

Your organization qualifies to participate if it meets these three criteria:

  • serves a low-income or underserved population
  • qualifies as a non-profit or has government funding status 501(c)3
  • promotes local community access initiatives to its participants

For more information about this program, please contact the zoo or contact the participating partner organizations directly.


I felt the need to tell someone how wonderful it has been to hand out the zoo tickets to our patients. The parents are always so grateful and the kids, so excited! Thank you so much for making it possible!

Many of the children and families with whom we work would not otherwise have the means to access the zoo and we truly appreciate the opportunity to provide them with this special privilege.” 

All of our clients are in transition from homelessness while they enter our program. All are low income and many are single parents with children. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to give them tickets to the zoo and they are always beyond thrilled to receive them.
