For a Wild Time, Take the Family Out to Elmwood Park Zoo

August 25, 2015 11:24 am

For almost a century, Elmwood Park Zoo has worked to educate Pennsylvanians on the importance of animal and habitat conservation. This little zoo in Norristown is also fully accredited, so you can rest assured that the animals are cared for and the facilities are above board.

The zoo provides a home for over a hundred species of animals, including bald eagles, timber wolves, howler monkeys and giraffes. True, Elmwood Park isn't nearly as large as the Philadelphia Zoo; however, past visitors say that for families with young children, the Elmwood Park Zoo is just the right size! It's large enough to keep the kids entertained, but not so big as to overwhelm or exhaust the little ones. Another perk: There's an on-site ice cream parlor as well as a small cafe, and you can pack your own picnic lunch.

Parking is free, but the lot does get crowded on busy days, so make sure you arrive early on weekends.
