They have a nice amount of animals for you to see and each animal exhibit has information on the animal for you to read about. There are pony rides and a... More

Great tucked away place PERFECT for kids. Offers virtually all the animals found at the Philadelphia Zoo with much less conjestion and hassle. Free parking! Also ofer special kids program and summer camps. Well worth the visit, especially for younger kids who may get overwhelmed with all that the Philadelphia Zoo has to offer or for those who tire easily.

Arrived at the zoo with my 10 year old and 7 year old and I was amazed with the amount of visitors. Many seemed to be locals that visit quite often. The kids enjoyed the animals especially the buffalo and the giraffe. Feeding the giraffes for a small fee was the favorite activity of the day. If you live near... More

This cute little zoo is away from the hustle bustle crowds of a typical city life. Located in the suburbs of south Philly it's perfect for a toddler or kindergarten age kid who is just getting introduced to animals. Very easy to walk around small place, stroller friendly and well directed. Exhibits include farm animals, wild animals, birds, reptiles and... More

I just love this little zoo. My Grandmother used to live across the street from the park and I always spent time at this zoo. A great place for kids old and young!

I have had a season pass to the Elmwood Park Zoo for over 3 years now. I have tow daughters ages 4.5 and 2.5. The zoo is great for them since it is smaller than the larger zoos. There is a fish pond when you first walk in which the kids love to feed. There is also a playground in... More

Love the Elmwood Park Zoo. It's a small enough size that little ones can get through the entire thing without being exhausted. There's a lot of interactive spots and an amazing playground. Also lots of terrific special events.

The Elmwood Park Zoo is perfect for little children especially the fact that they get tired fast and doing the Philadelphia Zoo with a 1-3 year older can be a waste because they tend to fall alseep and miss most of the day there. The highlights of the zoo this year was the Giraffes.

I would go there as a kid and now I get to go as an adult and it has turned from a small zoo into an amazing oasis filled with the most extraordinary exhibits!
