Dads get free Columbus zoo admission for Father’s Day

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is offering free admission to fathers and grandfathers on Sunday, June 25 in celebration of Father’s Day.

In order to qualify, the father or grandfather need to be accompanied by at least one of their children or grandchildren, regardless of age.

Fathers can enjoy spending time with their families and watching the animal families of the Zoo spend time together as well.

The Zoo recently welcomed several recent additions to these animal families, including a male vervet monkey named Jax Taylor born on April 12 and a baby silvered-leaf langur born on May 14. The arrival of the silvered-leaf langur also marks the third baby of this species born at the Columbus Zoo in 2018. Baby silvered leaf langurs are born a bright orange color, and after about three to five months, their hair color changes to a dark gray color like their adult counterparts. The three babies are currently in different phases of this transition. The two young monkeys who were born in late winter are now beginning to turn gray, like the adults, while the newest addition is still easy to distinguish.

This special Father’s Day offer is only available at the Zoo’s entrance. For more information, please visit
