Visit the oldest zoo in America

Tips for Families

There is plenty of paid parking available at the zoo, but driving there is a bit of a hairy experience since it is located off the Schuylkill Expressway, one of Philly's oldest and busiest highways. If you are visiting the city in the summer and want to get out there you can take a two-dollar Phlash shuttle from Center City to the zoos gates. You can also always take a bus or trolley using SEPTA, the city’s public transportation system. The zoo has an app that offers an interactive trip planner, realtime parking status updates, interactive content, and more.

Tips for Families

do not forget the cost of parking here is $15.00, and even though they just opened a new multi level lot, it still is rough to get parking, so get there early.

Tips for Families

Make up a scavenger hunt for the tweens, it seems to give them something to do and make it more fun for them. Bring a packed lunch. It is allowed and saves a lot of money.
