Penguin Days at Dallas Zoo - $5 Admission in January & February

Penguin Days at Dallas Zoo Means $5 Admission in January and February

The temperature is dropping and so is the price of admission to the Dallas Zoo. Everyone age 3 and up, including adults and seniors, can visit the African penguins and all the other animals at the Dallas Zoo for just $5 per person during the months of January and February. The Penguin Days promotion is the Dallas Zoo’s way of thanking the public for their support.

Penguin Days is a great time to enjoy the warmth of the Herpetarium, Bug U!, the Jake L. Hamon Gorilla Conservation Research Station, and the Simmons Safari Base Camp at Giants of the Savanna. Parking remains at $8 per vehicle. When the temperature goes up in March, so does admission. Children age 2 and younger and Dallas Zoological Society members are always free.

The Dallas Zoo, an accredited member of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, is the largest zoological experience in Texas featuring a 106-acre park, thousands of animals, and an education department that offers programs for all ages. The official airline of the Dallas Zoo is American Airlines. The Zoo is located at 650 S. R.L. Thornton Freeway (I-35 at Marsalis). Regular season admission is $12 for ages 12-64, $9 for ages 3-11 and 65+, and free for ages 2 and younger and Dallas Zoological Society (DZS) members. The Zoo is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, download the free iPhone app, visit www.DallasZoo.com, or call 469.554.7500.
