Established in the early 1800s, the Philadelphia Zoo is the oldest of its kind in America. Today it is home to nearly 2,000 creatures great and small from the top of the food chain to the bottom. Rare species from around the world are on hand, such as white lions, pandas, polar bears, and the country's only giant river otters. Call or check website for admission prices.
it was soo cool!!!! there were so many animals like tigers, birds, flamingos, bears, snakes, penguins and many others. it was really clean but it smelled a little in the primate house but that was all.i wish i could go back!!!!
Proces are a little high (16.95 for each adult plus $10 to park) but the zoo itself has a number of interesting exhibits. (The big cats were not on display, except to special members, as their exhibit was recently refurbished.)
The grounds were very well kept, lots of neat animal themed statues/sculptures, plenty of clean restrooms, and a Bank of America ATM on site.
Must sees: small mammal house - including the great nocturnal animal wing, the primate facility, and bear country.
The Philadelphia zoo is not neat and tidy, the staff is mean and cruel. The sidewalks are all broken. I hate it! NEver in your life time go there. the zoo smells horrible. so u should bring a air frensher if u r going or u should put alot of scent on. NEVER GO THERE IN YOUR LIFETIME. IT IS HORRIBLE.
The Philadelphia Zoo in Wintertime only costs an adult approximately $10.95 for entrance. Although the Zoo Balloon and Camel Rides are closed during the winter months, the animals are usually out in full-force. Currently the zoo is updating its Lion and Tiger habitat, so those animals are missing. However, the Peco Exibit/Primate House is entirely worth visiting, as it is nicely heated and full of highly entertaining exibits that range from Gorillas to Elephant Shrews. I would also highly recommend a visit to the Bearded Pigs and the Vampire Bats. All in all I would suggest visiting the Phila Zoo in Wintertime if you want to see animals up close and personal without much chaos of flocking tourists as seen in the summer months.
It is a good place to see the creations of nature, the fastest animal on earth, the king of the jungle, it is a good place for kids and adults too, It is a nice place to spend time, only the traffic outside the zoo was a little bad, rest was fine.
I love to visit zoos and I have been to many of them. Phila zoo is one of the more nicer ones I have been too. All areas were easy to travel and viewing the animals was with in reasonable access so overall I recommend that you go and experience the Phila. zoo.
i liked everything the whole set up was great and it was extremely clean it was out right beautiful. the animals were all out none were in the dens and mostly all were awake the best was the reptiles part you wil love it
Let me say first, I love the Philadelphia Zoo, and have been a member for many years. The exhibits are nice, the animals look healthy, lots of big old trees to walk under. However, I have been noticing more and more problems with parking. The parking personnel can be rude and mean. Sometimes you can't tell whether a lot is full until you pull in. I have been told to back out into traffic. We were yelled at today by a parking attendant named Terri Davis. He was scary. I hope that the Zoo will do some training with their parking staff to provide a better experience for the visitors.
