BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo is continuing to celebrate its 50th Anniversary with the
community by offering a discounted admission rate. In the month of June, every Wednesday between
the hours of 2pm – 4pm, guests can enjoy 50 cent (plus tax) admission for all ages.
The Zoo opened its doors on Easter Sunday in 1970 and admission was 50 cents per person at that time.
“This is one more way we are honoring this major milestone & saying thank you to the community who
helped us get there! We are thrilled to be celebrating our role in connecting people with wildlife and
wild places since the Zoo first opened 50 years ago,” said Phil Frost, Zoo Director.
The Zoo re-opened on May 21, 2020 to the public and has enacted a myriad of safety measures to keep
the staff, guests and animals safe. For a full list of safety modifications at the Zoo, please learn more
