Being a Kid Just Got Better! Enjoy Free Kiddie Park Rides with San Antonio Zoo Admission Throughout September

San Antonio’s cherished Kiddie Park is celebrating its centennial anniversary by offering an irresistible treat to families throughout the month of September. In a partnership with the San Antonio Zoo, Kiddie Park is inviting everyone to experience the magic of its classic rides, absolutely free, from Monday to Friday when you purchase zoo admission.

The nation’s oldest children’s amusement park, Kiddie Park, has been a beloved tradition in San Antonio for nearly a century. Nestled within the scenic confines of the San Antonio Zoo, it boasts a delightful array of timeless attractions that have enchanted generations of young visitors.

Among the cherished rides at Kiddie Park is the renowned hand-carved Herschell Spillman carousel, a true work of art that has delighted children for decades. Other attractions include classic boats for little sailors to set adrift, and an old-fashioned Ferris Wheel that provides panoramic views of the zoo’s lush surroundings.

Children aged 1 to 12 are in for a memorable experience as they revel in the very same rides that have made Kiddie Park a San Antonio institution. From the excitement of the carousel to the gentle sway of the Ferris Wheel, every visit to Kiddie Park is an opportunity for families to create lasting memories.

Tim Morrow, President and CEO of the San Antonio Zoo, expressed his enthusiasm for this special collaboration, saying, “Kiddie Park has been a San Antonio gem for nearly 100 years. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to come out and enjoy the zoo and free rides!”

Kiddie Park, originally located near the corner of Broadway and East Mulberry Avenue, faced challenges related to parking and expansion in its previous location. However, in the summer of 2019, the San Antonio Zoo stepped in to rescue this historic amusement park from potential closure and relocated it to the zoo’s grounds.

Even with the move, the San Antonio Zoo has meticulously preserved Kiddie Park’s nostalgic ambiance, ensuring that visitors continue to enjoy the same timeless experience that generations before them have cherished. The park’s enduring charm and classic attractions are a testament to the city’s commitment to preserving its rich history.

So, if you’re looking for an unforgettable family outing this September, make your way to the San Antonio Zoo and take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy free Kiddie Park rides from Monday to Friday with zoo admission. It’s a celebration of tradition, nostalgia, and the sheer joy of being a kid โ€“ an experience that is sure to bring smiles to the faces of children and parents alike.

Don’t miss out on this chance to create lasting memories while relishing the magic of Kiddie Park and the natural wonders of the San Antonio Zoo. Grab your tickets, bring the family, and let the fun begin!
