Gladys Porter Zoo is hosting a special event called "Brownsville Discount Days" for residents of Brownsville.
During the weekend of September 8-10, 2023, Brownsville residents will have the opportunity to visit the zoo at significantly discounted rates, which are the lowest of the year.

To take advantage of these discounted rates, at least one family member will need to show proof of residence at the entrance gate.
