Don't miss Butterfly Hollow!

Celebrate Father's Day at Franklin Park Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo

Sunday, June 17

Looking for something fun to do on Father’s Day? Visit the Zoo! Help us celebrate your dad (and all of ours!) this Father’s Day with FREE ADMISSION for fathers.

Be sure to look for all of the animal dads, including western lowland gorilla dad, Kit (pictured right), and his offspring, Kimani, Kambiri and Azize.

And don’t miss Butterfly Hollow! Our popular, seasonal exhibit opens June 16 (weather-permitting). At Butterfly Hollow, guests have the opportunity to stroll through this tranquil environment filled with butterflies. This tented, outdoor exhibit also features several garden beds, a pond, soothing surround-sound music, and new fairy houses to discover throughout the space. Butterfly Hollow will be open through Labor Day, September 3.
