This sensory-friendly day is specially designed for individuals on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities to enjoy a fun day at the Children's Aquarium at Fair Park with their families and caregivers.
Participants have access to Sensory Havens, which are modified to create relief from any overwhelming situations. These special rooms are operated by partners in the TWU Occupation Therapy department.
Other modifications will include quiet zones and a special sensory activity tour. Plus, activity stations with our community partners Texas Women’s University, Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and more.
Tickets are $4 per person and available at dallaszoo.com/event-free/sensory-friendly-days. For questions, call the Dallas Zoo education department at 469/554-7300. For the Children’s Aquarium, call 469/554-7340.
