Help Paint Lucy: Fundraiser

In September 2015, Lucy the Elephant will get a facelift to keep her looking her very best.  At 134 years old, our beloved Lucy needs a new coat of paint to prevent rust and other factors from further deteriorating her "skin".  One way you can help is by purchasing our Collectible Painting Fundraiser T-Shirt by clicking here and becoming an Official Sponsor.  We encourage you to take a moment to watch the short video below about this essential project.  Help us Save Lucy!

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.
