Join us for our Sensory-Friendly Evening at Southwick’s Zoo.

This special event is designed for individuals with autism, their families, and others who may benefit from a sensory friendly experience. We'll have the zoo all to ourselves!

Families will have the opportunity to spend two hours exploring the zoo and visiting animals in an intimate, quiet environment with no bright lights, rides, or gift store. Social stories available to help you enjoy the event. 

Tickets are specially priced at $15.00 per person.There will be complimentary snacks provided by our friends at the Flutie Foundation. We encourage families to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy, as there are many picnic tables located throughout the zoo. 

Thanks to the generosity of our friends at ABS Behavioral Health Services LLC, we will have limited scholarships available for those in need. Please contact  Allison Daigle or call 508-652-9900
