Lucy's 134th Birthday Party

From all of the staff, volunteers, and Lucy the Elephant herself, we'd like to send a big elephant-sized 'THANK YOU' to everybody to was able to attend Lucy's 134th Birthday celebration.  We hope you had an elephantastic time!  Don't forget...  Lucy turns the big 1-3-5 next year and YOU are invited!  Thank you all again for supporting our beloved Lucy the Elephant, a National Historic Landmark and the Oldest Roadside Attraction in America!!!

Original Posting: Take a walk down memory lane when Margate had its very own boardwalk that passed right in front of our favorite elephant.  Come celebrate Lucy's Birthday on the Boardwalk on Saturday, July 18th from 10am - 8pm.  Join us for a day filled with carnival games, activities, rides, food, and much more!  There is also FREE PARKING and SHUTTLE SERVICE at the Margate Municipal Building (formerly the Union Avenue School Playground) located at 9001 Winchester Avenue in Margate, NJ.  The shuttle will be running all day long and departs every 15 minutes for Lucy the Elephant.  For more information, call us at (609) 823-6473.

Lucy's 134th Birthday

The World's Greatest Elephant

Lucy the Elephant is located along the beach in Josephine Harron Park (named for our co-founder) in Margate, NJ. 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 on site for eating out-of-doors.

We also have friendly, trained volunteers and staff to assist you during your visit. On the tour you will learn about Lucy's unique architecture and her 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.
