The Zoo is open 9:00am to 4:30pm everyday except Thanksgiving and Christmas day.


FREE Admission and Parking – but we accept donations

We are following the CDC guidelines on masks.  If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask in the zoo.  We do still have exhibits with distanced viewing.  These exhibits are with animals that have shown high susceptibility to COVID.  It is for the protection of our animal collection that we request your cooperation in honoring those restrictions. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

The Salisbury Zoo offers FREE Admission and Free Parking. During our Revised Schedule time, parking is only available at the East Gate entrance (Civic Center side of the zoo).

The Salisbury Zoo is nestled along a branch of the Wicomico River on 13 acres in Salisbury, MD. The Zoo provides naturalistic exhibits featuring specimens native to the Americas and Australia. Wide paved paths offer assess ability throughout the Zoo. The Zoo charges no admission fee to its visitors, but relies heavily on donations. It is just a short drive from Ocean City, MD and Rehoboth Beach, DE.

Pets are not allowed in the Zoo. Service animals with registration are allowed in the Zoo. We are a smoke-free campus.
