THE WORLD’S GREATEST ELEPHANT
Lucy the Elephant is located along the beach in Josephine Harron Park (named for our co-founder) in Margate, New Jersey. She is six stories high and is listed on the National Park Registry of Historical Landmarks. Our park is fenced and contained, making child supervision easy. Picnic tables are also on site for eating out-of-doors.
We have friendly, trained volunteers and staff to assist you during your visit. On the tour you will learn about Lucy’s unique architecture and history, and you will get to climb a spiral staircase through her insides all the way up to the howdah on her back, providing a spectacular 360° view of the surrounding shore area.
Children and families are sure to enjoy visiting the only elephant in the world “you can walk through and come out alive!” We offer convenient hours and of course, Lucy is always available by appointment to be toured by schools & groups.
Guided tours through Lucy the Elephant occur every 30 minutes at the top and bottom of the hour. Please note that our last tour begins 30 minutes prior to closing.
Lucy the Elephant is always available to groups of 10 or more.
