​Did you know?

  • 15% Senior (62+) & Military discount off the named adult pricing. Discounts can only be applied at the North Woods Gift Store.
  • We offer library, organizational family passes, and group memberships


*Please note that participating institutions located in close geographic proximity to each other are not required to offer free or discounted admission to each other’s members in order to participate in the Reciprocal Admissions Programs, although they may offer an alternative discount. It is always a good idea to call ahead. BPZOO does not honor the Reciprocal Admissions Program with Roger Williams Park Zoo due to geographic proximity.

How Do You Zoo?

The membership levels below refer to the number of admission tickets included with each visit. A named adult must be present at each visit. For example, with a Zoo for 4 membership with 1 named adult, you can bring 3 additional guests (adults or children). With 2 named adults on that membership, either of the named adults can bring 2 additional guests (adults or children).

Paper cards are not automatically mailed to members. You can purchase printed membership cards for $2.50 (per 2 cards). If you would like a printed membership card, please email with your membership information and the number of cards needed.

A Gift That Lasts All Year! 

BPZOO Memberships make a perfect gift for the animal lover in your life.
