City ZOO

Lodz City ZOO is located in the Zdrowie Park, the largest city park in Lodz. The exact opening date of the ZOO is not known, but it is generally assumed to have taken place in 1938. The fist inhabitant of the ZOO was deer Boruta caught on the Reymont Square downtown. Over the years, the Lodz ZOO has changed a lot having become a comfortable living space for numerous species of animals and a popular place to visit for Lodz citizens.

Recently, Lodz City ZOO has begun the biggest expansion in its history. Almost half of the area will become the Oriental Garden. It’s a multi-level semi-aquatic exposition of fauna and elements of Oriental culture, namely, south-eastern Asia. Thanks to the Oriental Garden, common animal enclosures for different animal species, and the garden will gain a number of species that have never lived in Lodz, such as sharks, stingrays, orangutans, or clouded leopards. The construction of the Oriental Garden is planned for 3 years, and during this time the ZOO’s operation will be limited.
