Calling all explorers!

The Dallas Zoo will be open early for families to explore the zoo without the noise, crowds, and stimulation of a typical day. We limit the number of families who can attend, turn down sounds, and provide sensory havens. Families will enjoy exploring nature through fun and inclusive sensory-friendly activities developed by the Dallas Zoo and its partners.
