Elmwood Park Zoo
Elmwood Park Zoo features dozens of exotic and endangered species that hail from all over the globe. It's the perfect destination for a wild family outing!
Elmwood Park Zoo
Exciting, one-of-a-kind encounters are on the agenda for zoo guests. Marvel at the majestic jaguars, hand feed the giant giraffes, groom the goats at the barnyard, and take a selfie with a sloth at Harmony Hideaway. Meet the new herd of alpacas, catch a training session with the keepers and Penny the alligator, and run wild at the expansive playground. Venture inside Habitat HQ and meet the monkeys, flying bats and all sorts of slithery reptiles. Be sure to stop by the Zoo Bowl Theater, where you may see an eagle’s wingspan, an owl take flight, or a porcupine munching on snacks.
Beyond the animals—
Elmwood Park Zoo is also home to Treetop Adventures, a zip line park with courses for both adults and children (ages 4+). Guests both young and old will enjoy rides on the zoo’s vintage carousel, and everyone can bang out a simple song at the zoo's Percussion Garden.
Grab a bite to eat at the many food locations in the zoo, including Norristown's own Tosco’s Pizza. Adults ages 21 and over will enjoy the selection of beers, wines, and cocktails at the Zoo Brew Beer Garden.

We loved the zoo so much! All the staff was so kind and helpful. The exhibits were awesome. We especially loved the “monkeys with moustaches”😊 We also greatly appreciated that we could bring our corgi, Dug, with us. He loved exploring all the new smells. And so many people loved petting him too. Thank you so much for a wonderful day! We will be back!
