Guests can also celebrate the birth of twin Katahdin lambs in the Clayton Family Kids Cove. The two boys were born to mom Godiva and dad Stud Mutton on June 11.  Visitors can also explore the all new Tiger Forest and take a break to cool off with some water play at the Clayton Safari Splash, which is now open for the season.

“Making sure our guests have a memorable day with their family is important to our entire staff,” said Lisa New, President and CEO of Zoo Knoxville.  “For Father’s Day, we would like to offer dads a day at the zoo on us so we can do just that.  

Free admission for fathers is valid on Sunday, June 18, 2017, and cannot be combined with any other discount or offer.
