Zoo Atlanta Park Pass

Zoo Atlanta

Zoo Atlanta has changed dramatically since the earliest days of their Victorian origins, from the fascinating series of events that led to Atlanta’s first zoo, to the legendary Willie B., to the history of the giant panda program. They’ve come a long way since opening their doors way back in 1889!

Georgia families can now check out free excursions to Zoo Atlanta, just by having a library card. A partnership between Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Public Library Service allows adults with a valid library card to access the Zoo Atlanta Family Pass at any participating public library branch throughout the state of Georgia.
