Philadelphia Zoo

The Philadelphia Zoo is more than just a home to some of the most amazing animals on the planet, but also offers the whole family plenty of action.  Featured attractions include the Wild Earth adventure simulator, PZ Express train, Channel 6 Zooballoon, Camel Safari, Draft Horse and Pony Rides, Swan Boat Rides, and the PZ Panning Company.

The Philadelphia Zoo is located at the corner of 34th Street and Girard Avenue in Philadelphia's historic Fairmount Park, the world's largest landscaped city park. The Zoo is two miles from downtown Philadelphia and easily accessible by car from the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76). Parking is available along Girard Avenue at 35th and 38th Streets. Additional parking is available at the south end of the Zoo. Public transportation is available using SEPTA, which runs several bus routes to the Zoo area.
