Seniors at Northwest Trek Wlidlife Park

QUITE THE BARGAIN, TONS OF FUN: SENIOR CITIZENS RECEIVE HALF-OFF
GENERAL ADMISSION AT NORTHWEST TREK WILDLIFE PARK IN SEPTEMBER
     
Seniors aged 65 or older receive special half-price general admission at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park throughout the month of September. That means a ticket is just $11.50 per senior. To receive the discount, tickets must be purchased in person on the day of the visit. The reduced price is not available online.

It’s a wonderful time to visit. Kids are back in school, and the weather is traditionally grand. Also, herd animals in the 435-acre Free-Roaming Area demonstrate behaviors that only occur during the fall. Every admission to Northwest Trek comes with a naturalist-narrated, 40-minute tram ride through the wildlife park’s meadows and forests. The Free-Roaming Area is home to American bison, Roosevelt elk, mountain goat kids, bighorn sheep, moose, deer, and other animals.

Seniors with grandchildren may enjoy a memory-making day out with the kids. And if the children need to run off a bit of steam, they’ll enjoy the half-acre, nature-inspired Kids’ Trek playground. When it’s time for a hamburger, ice cream or other treat, seniors receive 10 percent off in the Forest Café and gift shop.

Hours Sept. 4-29 are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

On Sep. 30 the park is open 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Extend your experience and stay a night or two in the area. Most of the area cabins and lodges offer senior discounts. And here are a few additional ideas for activities after exploring the wildlife park: visit Mount Rainier National Park, take a guided horseback riding tour, go for a scenic drive, visit a sculpture park, and/or take a train ride. The longer you stay, the more you’ll see.
