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.
