Parken Zoo is a combined amusement park and zoo in the town of Eskilstuna in Sweden.

The amusement park was founded in 1898, and there was a display of animals from the beginning of the fifties. In 1954 Parken Zoo started to charge visitors an entrance fee. In 1956 the zoo displayed around 200 animals.

During the eighties the zoo started to specialize in feline carnivores.

In 2013 a clouded leopard escaped from its enclosure and killed three deer.
