Elmwood Park Zoo Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania
The 16-acre Elmwood Park Zoo is a great place to visit time and time again, especially for smaller children who don't require the thrill of the larger animals.
Kiddos will be amazed with more than 200 fascinating wild animals of North and South America, including jaguars, cougars, wolves, bison, elk, prairie dogs, otters, bobcats, alligators, eagles, owls, and others. The exhibits present the animals in their natural settings, where they can be viewed at close range. Highlights for many young visitors include the zoo's live animal shows, petting barn, a Butterfly exhibit and pony rides, offered April through September (weather permitting).
Need more activity? Elmwood Park Zoo has a large enclosed playground with swings, slides and more for the kiddos. Plus, benches and tables for parents. Pack a lunch and make a day of it. And don't miss the Eagles Nest. It is a personal favorite.
Ever wondered what happens after the zoo closes? Find out at an exciting overnight campout! Every second Friday of the month, June through October, sleep over at the zoo and experience the wilderness in a whole new way! Perfect for both the first-time and seasoned camper, ZooSnoozes are a great opportunity to get outdoors in a safe environment. Every
