Elmwood Park Zoo
It all started with a farmer's generosity. In 1924, a civic-minded citizen handed over 16 acres of lush farmland and a small group of critters to the Borough of Norristown. Today, the Elmwood Park Zoo welcomes guests in hopes of creating a future stock of wildlife lovers and conservation advocates. A menagerie of exotic animals from all over the globe - including jaguars, howler monkeys, gray wolves, and bald eagles - peer back at visitors. Guests can also spy on more than 15 species that are threatened or endangered.
