Philadelphia Zoo

Zoo in Logan Square & Fairmount

The country's oldest zoo (first opened in 1874) is home to nearly 1300 animals including tigers, pumas, polar bears – you name it – in naturalistic habitats. Its unique Zoo360 series of see-through mesh trails for gorillas, big apes, tigers and meerkats, allow these animals more space to roam the zoo grounds.
