Animals were great kids loved it. Small but still enjoyable. Kids loved walking through the extinct animal area until some camp kids started screaming running past and into us. Climbing all over the exhibits and areas that were clearly posted do not climb or walk anywhere other then the path. The so called counselors were sitting at the beginning not... More

There are bigger zoos, there are fancier zoos, however this one has (currently) a tiger, who will say hello to you (ask staff how a tiger says hello) a snow leopard that could, I am told, jump 30 feet from a sitting position, but just like your house cat, really doesn't care to impress you, (except she is pretty) some...

A great opportunity to see animals from around the world for an affordable price. A great learning experience and never is too packed.

It's best that Saint John has zoo but for the most part it's nothing too exciting. On the other hand it is a great place to take kids!

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
