Nestled in the lively town of Paramus, the Bergen County Zoo is a green oasis in a busy world. This Zoo is located in Van Saun Park, a name that has been in the area since the 1600's. This scenic Zoo and Park is a great escape from the perils of life.  The park has a playground, pavilions, dog park, sports and open fields, a pond, lots of history, and of course the Bergen County Zoo. Stop by sometime to relax and take a deep breath of fresh air, learn that charm that has drawn people to this place, and appreciate the world and animals around you!

Gift Shop
 
The Gift Shop is now operated by the Friends of the Bergen County Zoo!

We have snacks, ice cream, a great variety of plush animals, shirts, and educational books!

Stop by sometime and see the great gifts you can get yourself or others!

Sponsor An Animal

Sponsoring an animal is a simple but effective way to personally help an animal. Your sponsorship will help cover the cost of veterinarian care, exhibit improvements, enrichment supplies, as well as their grocery bill! (Those cows eat a lot of hay!) With amounts starting at $25 you can chose a specific animal to sponsor. It's a great gift idea for yourself as well as for others, and its even tax-deductible!


Conservation 

Here at the Bergen County Zoo we believe that animal preservation is key for future success. No Animal should go extinct especially if it is because of poachers, deforestation, or global change. Every year we find communities that help animals thrive in the wild and keep them off the endangered species list.
