Due to construction in the park, extended closures of both eastbound and westbound lanes of Druid Park Lake Drive are currently taking place. If you are planning to come to the Zoo, we suggest you take the following route to access the Zoo parking lot.
Take I-83 to Exit 9 B – Coldspring Lane West
Follow Coldspring Lane approximately 0.6 miles to the traffic light at Greenspring Avenue
Turn LEFT onto Greenspring Avenue.
Follow Greenspring Avenue approximately 1.3 miles
Go straight at the corner of Greenspring Avenue and Druid Park Lake Drive to enter Druid Hill Park.
Follow the road and turn left at the 4 th road (the Old Reptile House will be on your right)
It’s not every day you see a fierce predator with their prey. Join us Friday (10/16) to watch as carnivores such as the polar bears, grizzlies, otters, and eagle receive special meals throughout the Zoo.
Whole prey items are a form of enrichment periodically provided to animals at the Zoo. Special meals like this are not live, yet encourage the animals to use their natural instincts and adaptations like climbing, smelling, and pouncing.
This special experience is included with Zoo admission or membership.
