Elmwood Park Zoo reserves the right to photograph, videotape, film and/or record our visitors while on zoo grounds for purposes of advertising, promoting and publicizing the Zoo.

Respect the Animals / Respect the Zoo

  • The Elmwood Park Zoo is a smoke-free and vape-free environment.
  • Please do not throw objects, tap or bang on exhibit glass. This might frighten or excite the animals.
  • Please do not feed the animals. Our animals are on strict diets in order to maintain their health and the wrong food can make them ill. Feeding stations or exhibits where guests are given special feeding permissions are excluded.
  • Do not attempt to enter any exhibits or attempt to climb, sit on, lean into or over any exhibit barricade. These barricades exist for the safety of our animals as well as the safety of our guests.
  • Guests that fail to adhere to these policies or act in a generally inappropriate manner will be removed from the Zoo without refund.
  • Please note; animals may not be available or their location may change from one visit to the next. The Elmwood Park Zoo does not issue rain checks or refunds for any reason, but will make every reasonable attempt to notify guests of any changes at the time of their arrival.
