Discount Days at Gladys Porter Zoo
Gladys Porter Zoo will have special discount admission prices for Upper Valley and out-of-Rio Grande Valley residents
on October 13th, 14th, and 15th. Guests can rack up some impressive savings with 60 to 75 percent off regular admission rates
and see the new zoo babies that have recently debuted, including a baby orangutan, baby capybaras,
baby flamingos and an adorable baby red-flanked duiker.

The admission rate will be $6.00 per adult and $4.00 per child for those living in
Hidalgo County, Starr County, Reynosa, Nuevo Progreso, and outside of the Rio Grande Valley. 

When purchasing tickets at the gate, guests will need to present proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or utility bill,
to receive the discounted rate. Only one person per family or group will need to present proof of residency.
Visitors living outside of the United States may present a passport or other identification to satisfy this requirement.
