to free zoo day
Senior citizens living in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties are invited to enjoy a day at the Detroit Zoo on Senior Day, Wednesday, Sept. 4, 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, tractor train tours, bingo, a senior resource area and zookeeper talks highlighting some of the Zoo's senior animal residents.
In addition, Blue Care Network 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.
