English The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore

The Maryland Zoo — also known as The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore and formerly known as The Baltimore City Zoo or the Baltimore Zoo — is a 135-acre park located in historic Druid Hill Park in the northwestern area of the City of Baltimore, Maryland, (U.S.A.), with the postal address of 1876 Mansion House Drive. Druid Hill was opened in 1860 as the first major park purchase by the City under foreseeing Mayor Thomas Swann (1809-1883), (and later as 33rd Governor of Maryland, 1866-1869) and was later designed by famed nationally-known landscaper Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903), with additional work on various park buildings contributed by future Baltimore City Hall architect George A. Frederick (1842-1924), and Park Commissioner John H.B. Latrobe (son of earlier famed British-American architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe [1764-1820]), who also was an accomplished lawyer, author, artist, amateur architect and civic leader. Olmsted had earlier won a contest for the design of plans for New York City's famed Central Park in mid-town Manhattan in 1858, a year after it opened, and worked on the massive public works project during its construction from 1858 to 1873. The Maryland Zoo is now currently home to over 2,000 animals, and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

French The Maryland Zoo

The Maryland Zoo (autrefois The Baltimore Zoo) est un zoo situé à Baltimore dans le Maryland, aux États-Unis.

Le zoo est situé dans le Druid Hill Park, ce qui était ouvert comme le premier achat d'un parc par la ville de Baltimore sous le maire pressentant, Thomas Swann (de 1809 à 1883), et il était conçu par Frederick Law Olmsted, paysagiste connu au niveau national, avec des travaux supplémentaires sur quelques bâtiments du parc contribués par George A. Frederick, l'architecte de Baltimore City Hall (la Mairie de Baltimore) et John H.B. Latrobe, le commissaire du parc et fils de l'architect anglo-américain très connu, Benjamin Henry Latrobe.

Ouvert en 1876, le zoo est le troisième plus ancien parc animalier du pays, avec plus de 2 000 animaux, répartis sur environ 200 espèces. Il possède une importante collection d'animaux africains et reste actif dans les programmes de conservation d'une vingtaine d'espèces, et par conséquent, il est par ailleurs accrédité par l'Association des Zoos et Aquariums.
