Saturday, December 5th, 2020

ZooTampa at Lowry Park welcomes individuals with autism, their families, and others who may benefit from a sensory-friendly experience. Modifications around the Zoo will include sound adjustments and quiet zones to create an enjoyable environment for the whole family. In addition, families can download social stories and parent tips prior to the event here or on the CARD website.

Doors will open at 8:00 am for Day of Discovery participants only, with lights and sounds adapted for individuals with sensory differences and their families. Sensory Day of Discovery ends at 9:30 am, when the Zoo opens for normal business hours, but participants are welcome to continue exploring throughout the day!

Distract packs are available at Guest Services.

Day of Discovery is FREE for Zoo Members.

Non-Members: Only $5 if purchased before 12/5/2020. $8 on day of event. Last ticket sold onsite at 9:00 am.
