Elmwood Park Zoo Reviews

This is a small zoo but they manage to pack a lot into a small space! There are lots of different animals to see and feeding experiences (these cost extra). The highlight for us was our 6yr old doing ... more »

Visited while we were in the area to visit some museums in Philadelphia. It was a wonderful visit and we all enjoyed it very much (2 adults, 2 teens). I wasn't so sure and considered not going because... more »

This is not a zoo that will take all day or leave you exhausted. There is a manageable amount of animals (Elk, bison, giraffe, zebra, jaguars...) to see and the zoo has an easy to follow looped path. ... more »

Our kids love it here! Perfect for young kids or a quick trip to see a variety of animals. They've been making updates to the zoo, like a new Jaguar exhibit. Plus a big playground makes it lots of fun!

This zoo is so family friendly, great for little legs and easy on the big legs that follow them! They really think when they put up exhibits to captivate their visitors. The fees for the extra items are even reasonable!

Nice local small zoo to hang out for the day or a few hours. There are not many animals, but the park is laid out nicely to feel like there is a lot to do and explore. Big playground and merrygoround and little other rides that you pay to (about 4$).

Super cute local Zoo, just a little too pricey for what it is. I took my step-daughter's there last weekend. I didn't mind buying the ticket but $9 for three sodas is absolutely ridiculous and for them to ride the carousel it cost me 8 bucks let alone all the little things in between. I just thought that it was super pricey for what you get.

Nice small zoo! We went on the first day of spring and thought we might miss a lot of animals. Although the giraffe and zebra were not out, we were able to enjoy most of the other animals. The kids were even able to feed the bison (for an additional fee) and it was definitely the highlight of the visit. We saw a lot of improvements taking place. We definitely want to visit in the summer to check out the carousel and train.
