ELMWOOD PARK ZOO
by Stan Huskey.
FREE PROGRAM OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Elmwood Park Zoo was established in 1924 when roughly 16 acres of land and a small group of animals were donated to the borough of Norristown. Although the early years of the zoo were more akin to a small farm, it has gone through an extensive expansion during the past few decades. This expansion and the continued revitalization of Elmwood Park Zoo include some notable residents, such as the zoo’s owl, who has become the mascot of Temple University, and its bald eagle, a sideline regular for the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles. The zoo today, with new features including a zip line and a giraffe exhibit, looks to the future, with plans for even more exhibits, a new restaurant, and an additional 20 acres yet to be developed. Books will be available for purchase.

Stan Huskey, editor of the Times Herald in Norristown since 2002, has developed a close relationship with the Elmwood Park Zoo and followed its history and growth firsthand. Huskey is also a member of the Norristown Rotary Club, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Citizens Advisory Council, and the Greater Norristown Society of the Arts. He is also the author of Remembering Norristown: Stories From the Banks of the Schuylkill River.
