Experience the Dallas Zoo For Just a Buck

The zoo expects big crowds for its dollar day

With another beautiful day on tap, you may want to make plans to head to the Dallas Zoo on Wednesday, but you may have a little wait.

That's because the zoo is hosting its dollar day, which, of course, is one of the most popular days at the zoo.

That's right, for just a buck you can get into the zoo to enjoy everything it has to offer from its new Koala Walkabout exhibit, to the Wilds of Africa experience and everything in between. Kids 2 and younger get in free.

For a little extra cash, you can even feed the giraffe, take the monorail safari tour or hop up and take a camel ride.

The zoo is open between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and parking will cost you $8. Don't want to drive or bother with parking? No problem, the zoo encourages you to take the DART red line, which will take you right to the zoo entrance.
