GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) There’s a new option this weekend if you want to get the family out of the house. The John Ball Zoo opens for the season on March 1! We took our camera in a little early to see what you can expect.
Even if it’s cold and snowy this early in the season, you can still enjoy indoor areas like Treasures of the Tropics, the aquarium, and the indoor chimp viewing area. On opening day, you can also see strolling animals, kids can work on art projects and watch the penguins being fed!
Admission prices to John Ball Zoo are discounted through May 9. Adults are $5 and kids are $4. Children two and younger are free.
