Picture of Brandywine Zoo

Brandywine Zoo


Open since 1905, Delaware's only zoo is located a few steps from the Brandywine River. The 12-acre zoo features condors, river otters, and other animals native to the Americas and the temperate areas of Asia.

Not far from the bustle of the city is a serene, yet wild place. Set in beautiful Brandywine Park, Brandywine Zoo offers a convenient escape that feels worlds away.

The Brandywine Zoo is managed by Delaware State Parks with the support of the Delaware Zoological Society. This quaint facility is home to a variety of species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. At Brandywine Zoo, visitors return again and again to see our animals in natural settings. Come see our Golden Lion Tamarins, playful river otters, red pandas, Andean condors, Florida bobcat, sandhill crane, burrowing owls, pygmy goats, llama, rhea, and the world's largest rodent, the capybara. And little ones love the petting zoo!

Learn about wild and exotic animals right in your community with the Brandywine Zoo's educational programs. Contact the Zoo Education Department for more information at (302) 571-7788, Ext. 208 or 209.

Visiting the Zoo

Fall, winter, and cloudy days are a good time to visit the Zoo — it's less crowded, and many of the animals are more active. If you choose to visit on a hot day, try to come early or a few hours before closing. Please note that some of our tropical animals may not be visible on days below 50°F.

When planning a visit to the Zoo, be sure and check the zoo’s Calendar of Events and Facebook pages for upcoming programs, as well as maintenance, event or weather-related closings. When you arrive, check the daily schedule posted at the front of the zoo for opportunities to watch animal feedings, animal training sessions, keeper talks or animal shows.

Year-Round Fun

From Parrot Parties and Noon Year's Eve, to Family Fun Night and Zippity Zoo Days, there's always something happening at the Zoo! St. Nick gets in on the act with a special Breakfast With Santa in December, and Brew at the Zoo and a special Valentine's Day program are tailored just for the grown-ups. And a birthday party at the Brandywine Zoo is an unforgettable experience for the birthday boy or girl and guests, too!
