Sensory Friendly Days

Sensory Friendly Days are specially designed for individuals on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities.

Sensory Friendly Day is specially designed for individuals on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities to enjoy a fun day at the Zoo with their families and caregivers!

Participants have access to Sensory Havens, which are modified to create relief from any overwhelming situations. These special rooms are operated by our partners in the TWU Occupation Therapy department.

Other modifications will include Quiet Zones throughout the Zoo and a special sensory activity tour! Plus, activity stations with our community partners Texas Women’s University, Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and more.
