2022: Lucy the Elephant is currently under construction for a major restoration project that will replace her entire metal exterior. While under construction, the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff is the main priority, and therefore the park surrounding Lucy the Elephant and Guided Tours through Lucy the Elephant is temporarily CLOSED during construction. It is anticipated that tours will resume Memorial Day Weekend 2022.

About Lucy the 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.
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.

Our Personal Take...
In 2016, we stopped into the famous seaside landmark. We took the small tour, watched a few videos, and truly enjoyed every moment and every inch of this fun Jersey Shore attraction.
