Master Plan

Elmwood Park Zoo’s Master Plan includes a number of new and exciting features and animal enclosures that will grow the zoo beyond its current footprint. Existing animal enclosures will be revitalized, and changes will be made to the zoo’s infrastructure that will improve the guest experience.  Elmwood Park Zoo’s 100 Years Campaign aims to raise enough funds to complete Phase 1 of the Master Plan by 2024.
