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.

Highly recommend taking the trip up to Moncton for the zoo there... much better. Cherry Brook Zoo is always on the cusp of closing and although they do have some interesting animals mostly boring and local wildlife.

The Zoo has the POTENTIAL to be a great spot but seems that any money the Zoo receives is NOT being invested AT the Zoo. The folks that run this place need to realize there is room for IMPROVEMENT. There seems to be hardly anyone working there to look after the animals, there is nothing exciting to draw more visitors,... More

The zoo is very cute with close viewing areas. The animals are well kept and its informational. We especially enjoyed getting so close to the monkeys. There is not much to see in Saint John. So this is a bright light in the midst of not a lot. We enjoyed it.

This was the worst zoo experience I have ever had, and I am an avid zoo fan! Unbelievable conditions- no water, no shade. The tiger was pacing like a mad man and his cage did not seem capable of containing him should he lunge. I was actually nervous. There is also a Trail of Regret- this is a major bummer... More

Financial hard times are evident all over the zoo. The grounds are fairly well kept but have not seen any updated in a long time. The duck pond boardwalk did not feel safe! The boards were rotten and had vary bad slopes to them. There were no ducks there anyway!! (they were hanging out in the duck cage). The variety... More
