JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is offering $5 admission on Saturday to celebrate a record-breaking year of attendance.

The Zoo wants to thank the community for its support by offering the discounted admission on Saturday, September 26.

"Jacksonville is a wonderful city." said Tony Vecchio, Executive Director of JZG. "We are so happy and proud that the community sees us as a place to enjoy with their families, and that area visitors see us as a destination. We can't say ‘Thank You' enough to the community for helping make us one of America's best Zoos."

The Zoo is celebrating an attendance of over 900,000 so far in 2015. That number surpasses 2014's attendance in just the first 10 months of this year.

No coupon is required for Saturday's discounted admission.
