As a thank you to the residents of Summit County that so graciously support your Akron Zoo, we will offer Summit County residents free days to enjoy your zoo.

There are a limited number of tickets available each day. You must reserve your ticket online, in advance. In order to receive your complimentary tickets you must create and be signed into your online account. Your complimentary tickets will be reflected once you add your tickets to your shopping cart. 

Complimentary tickets are only able to be reserved by those within Summit County and are limited to four per household. Parking is included this year to offset the online service fee.

Please note the following when reserving your tickets:

  • Tickets are date specific and can only be used on the date listed on your ticket.
  • The system will default to the next available date. You can select the date and time that is best for you. Please select "Other Date" to make this change.
  • The zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Tickets can be scanned at any time during the day.
  • The last admission into the park is 4:30 p.m. The park will close for the evening at 5:00 p.m.

Please note all tickets are non-transferable, non-refundable and are unable to be rescheduled. The Akron Zoo is a rain, snow or shine facility.
