Philadelphia Zoo

3400 W. Girard Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19104 GET DIRECTIONS
Local: 215-243-1100

Philadelphia Zoo is home to nearly 1,300 animals, many rare and endangered. Cheetahs, hippos, giraffes and much more make the Zoo Philadelphia's leading family destination, welcoming over 1.3 million visitors a year.

The Zoo offers a first-in-the-world animal travel and exploration trail system that enables primates, big cats and -- with the newest extension, Gorilla Treeway -- gorillas, to travel above and across visitor pathways beyond their traditional habitat. 

From April 11-October 31, 2015, experience Second Nature, an unconventional art exhibit exclusively at Philadelphia Zoo. Featuring larger-than-life animal-inspired sculptures, Second Nature tells stories of endangered species through recycled, reduced, reused and repurposed materials in a way that has great scale and whimsy to it.

Award-winning exhibits like First Niagara Big Cat Falls, McNeil Avian Center and KidZooU make Philadelphia Zoo a must-visit destination for guests of all ages.
