Creature feature at the Brandywine Zoo

The Brandywine Zoo is Delaware’s only zoo and has been a landmark in the city of Wilmington since 1905. Today, the Brandywine Zoo features an array of animals native to North and South America and temperate Asia. Situated adjacent to the Brandywine River, not far from the center of Wilmington, the Brandywine Zoo is the highlight of the Brandywine Park. Small, friendly and intimate, our Zoo offers families and individuals a special and unique wildlife experience.

Visitors can learn about endangered species, conservation, and the animal world while strolling through the tranquil environment of the Zoo. The Zoo hosts special events, themed family programs, and summer camps specially designed for school-age children.
