The Elmwood Park Zoo permits guests requiring service animals to enter the Zoo. Their permission to enter the Zoo is at the Zoo's discretion based on guidelines set forth by the ADA. Service animals are not pets; they are trained to perform specific tasks for their owner. Service animals entering the Zoo must remain on a leash or a harness at all times and may not be left unattended. Guests are required to clean-up all defecation from their service animals while at the Zoo.
Please note, due to the free-flighted birds inside the Birds of Paradise exhibit, service animals are not permitted to go inside.
If you have any questions about accessibility, or prefer to make arrangements prior to your arrival, please call Guest Services at 800.652.4143 x 241.
