February vacation week at Franklin Park Zoo
February 19 @ 10:00 am - February 23 @ 2:00 pm$9.95 – $13.95
Leap, climb and roar your way to Franklin Park Zoo for the Animalympics during February school vacation week! In honor of the ongoing winter games, the Zoo’s animals will be getting into the Olympic spirit as they receive themed enrichment items throughout the week. Can you jump farther than a kangaroo or roar louder than a lion? Test your own athletic abilities against different animals to try to take home the gold! Chat with zookeepers and stop by the education station in the Tropical Forest to learn more fun animal facts.
On Monday, February 19, don’t miss out on the birthday party for Little Joe, a western lowland gorilla who will be turning 25 this year! The indoor gorilla exhibit at Franklin Park Zoo will be festively decorated and the gorillas will enjoy treats made especially for them. Guests will also have the opportunity to sign a giant birthday card for Little Joe and enjoy cake from Montilio’s Baking Company, available first come, first serve.
Please note: the gorillas will go on exhibit at 10:15 a.m.
