Tropical Forest

Enter the rarefied world of the rainforest, where dozens of free-flight birds swoop through lush greenery and rushing waterfalls in a habitat home to hundreds of animals. Tropical surprises await you around every corner of this stunning centerpiece of Franklin Park Zoo, where you’ll encounter ring-tailed lemurs, Baird’s tapirs, pygmy hippos, ocelots, and our western lowland gorillas-- observed up close and personal at five glass viewing stations.

Please note, in this phase of our reopening, the capacity within buildings is very limited. At the Tropical Forest Pavilion (home to gorillas, pygmy hippos, ring-tailed lemurs and more), staff will be stationed at the entrance and exit to monitor capacity. Due to the popularity of this space, wait times will vary. Please maintain social distance as you wait to enter the Tropical Forest. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
