The Salisbury Zoo offers FREE Admission and Free Parking. Parking is available at both the East and the West Gate entrances.

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.
