Don't miss Butterfly Landing!

Celebrate Father's Day at Franklin Park Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo

Sunday, June 18

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, and say hello to our new bongo baby, born April 27! Visit western lowland gorilla dad, Kit (pictured right), and his offspring, Kimani, Kambiri and Azize.

And don’t miss Butterfly Landing! Our popular, seasonal exhibit opens June 17 (weather-permitting). At Butterfly Landing, guests have the opportunity to stroll through this tranquil environment filled with butterflies. This tented, outdoor exhibit also features several garden beds, a pond and soothing surround-sound music. Butterfly Landing will be open through Labor Day, September 4.
