Mother's Day at Oakland Zoo

To celebrate Mother's Day, Moms get to ride the train for free at Oakland Zoo. Take a ride on the Outback Express Adventure Train where you can see wallaroos and emus up close. Spending a day at the zoo is a great way to celebrate Mother's Day. Bring the whole family to see siamang swing, lemurs leap, and river otters that are incredibly cute.
