Brookfield Zoo Opens Sensory-Friendly Family Room and New Resource Center

The Chicago Zoological Society (CZS), which manages Brookfield Zoo, is opening a sensory-friendly family room as well as a new inclusion resource center that will help to make every family’s trip to the zoo a positive and inclusive one! The new low-sensory room offers a quiet environment for children who may need a break from the potentially over stimulating environment of a day at the zoo. The room includes fidgets and other sensory-support materials, comfortable seating, blackout curtains, dimmable lights, and access to  Wifi. It is a safe and convenient place to deescalate before children and families return to their zoo visit. To register and to access additional information on the zoo’s accessible amenities, make sure to visit their website!
