Mother's Day at Reid Park Zoo

May 12, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Celebrate and thank mom with a fun and relaxing day at the Zoo. Mothers of all generations will receive free daytime admission at the gate with an accompanying paying child or adult admission.

Meet some of the Zoo’s animal moms and learn how they care for their little wild ones. See how zookeepers care for animal families and watch as they provide some “pampering enrichment” to a few of the animal moms. This Mother’s Day is extra meaningful as the Zoo recently welcomes two new spring babies: a giraffe and elephant calf, who are important births for their species.

Treat mom to lunch or a refreshing mimosa at the Flamingo
