Ocelot Shop

As of spring 2024, the Ocelot Shop is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In season, you can find a large selection of souvenirs including plush, T-shirts, unique toys, animal- and nature themed jewelry, and fair-trade items. All proceeds benefit the Salisbury Zoo.

From November-March, both Ocelot Shop and the cafe are closed, except during special events.

Salisbury City Park

The Salisbury City Park is located in the heart of the city on each side of the east prong of the Wicomico River. The park lands are bounded by East Main Street, Snow Hill Road, North Park Drive, South Park Drive, and Beaglin Park Drive.

On the park’s western end are two distinctive structures erected during the early 1930s, an octagonal bandstand and arched foot bridge.

In the middle of the park is the Salisbury Zoo and just east is Ben’s Red Swings, a community playground.

The park is also home to the Salisbury Dog Park, the Salisbury Skatepark and a disc golf course.

Free Wi-Fi Available

The Salisbury Zoo offers free Wi-Fi to its visitors.

Wheel Chairs – Mary Cameron Accessibility Program

Thanks to a generous gift from Mary Cameron, the Zoo is able to provide a limited number of devices, such as wheelchairs, to assist individuals whose disabilities might otherwise limit their opportunity to visit the Zoo.  Individuals may call the Zoo at 410-548-3188 for more information.  These devices are provided free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.  Individuals borrowing one of these devices will be asked to leave a driver’s license as a security deposit.

Ben’s Red Swings

Ben’s Red Swings was created in memory of Ben Layton with the help of the Salisbury community. The playground is one of the biggest in the area and borders the west side of the Zoo. It offers a picnic area, swings, jungle gym, slides, tunnels, sand boxes and lots of fun for the family.
