Very well set up zoo; you can tell the animals are well taken care of. They had info boards set up at each animals' pen, and if you're lucky you can see a mountain goat with the biggest balls ever! There was a cute little gazebo in the middle of a marsh, but you can tell some of the boards... More

Was a nice visit. Not very many exotic animals, but a fun place to see with children to get them used to wildlife.

Nice small zoo, friendly, with each animal having been given a name, which I thought was rather cute. But one section of the zoo is unique - the Vanished Kingdom, which shows species which have gone extinct in the past 400 years and is very open about when and why they did so. For many of the animals, life-size color... More

We visited the Cherry Brook Zoo right at opening time. There was still a considerable amount of fog in the air and not many customers so it was a nice quiet visit. Zoos are generally sad affairs; to enjoy seeing wild animals caged never seems quite right. That being said, the animals here appear healthy, the enclosures adequately sized, and... More

We went in the middle of the winter so we didn't get to see everything however the elder man at the desk was very friendly. I really enjoyed seeing the cute monkeys. I heard the prices are higher compared to Moncton however i don't mind paying a little more to support the animals & the business. I think the zoo... More

If you are from out of town, probably worth a miss. Tough to get to and not too exciting. Good spot if you have kids abd want to spend a decent afternoon

Not worth the money, really disappointing customer service, and not a whole lot of animals. I'm not sure if they are funded or what but they need to put some money into updating some things.

This is a great zoo especially if you have young children, although young and old would enjoy it there to see the different types of exotic animals. We will be back!

I do not think every town should have a zoo they are taking the animals out of there natural homes and I sucks for the animals to be locked in that prison don't go there!

Good place to take the little kids and get tired for the day. The tickets are affordable and takes half a day for the tour which was great for the kids and spent the rest of the day in uptown.
