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.

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

The park is also home to the Salisbury Dog Park and the Salisbury Skate Park.

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.
