Half the Price, Twice the Fun!

Franklin Park Zoo

Friday, November 24, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Burn off the turkey and get the family out of the house! Admission is half-price the day after Thanksgiving.

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend a memorable day with family and friends while discovering all of the incredible animals at the Zoo. Leave the winter chill behind and warm up inside the always balmy Tropical Forest, home to western lowland gorillas, ring-tailed lemurs, pygmy hippos, and much more!
