There are lots of reasons to love living in Norristown beyond the fact that it’s just a quick drive from King of Prussia and Center City Philadelphia. One of them is that you have easy access to the Elmwood Park Zoo, which sits right on Harding Boulevard in Norristown. Another is that admission to the zoo is free for Norristown residents on the first Sunday of every month.

Take full advantage of the next free-admission Sunday and come meet the critters who call the Elmwood Park Zoo home. Jaguars, zebras, and giraffes are among the resident mammals living in carefully designed habitats, similar to their native homes, while everything from bald eagles and Amazon parrots lives in the bird sanctuary. Stop by the zoo near Norris Hill Apartments to meet these and other critters on an upcoming weekend.
