Enjoyed the scenery, cheap and enjoyable activity to do with the kids….. Its not far from other local attractions. While you're in the area, try the chinese food at Hunan Springs!

Highly recommended,just off Rt. 78, technically in Allentown but nowhere near downtown. My young kids always find the trout of different sizes and colors fascinating, and feeding them is the icing on the cake. I enjoy it as an adult because it is serene and peaceful, and a nice way to spend an hour or two relaxing. You wont need... More

My family have come to this park to feed the fish and take a fun walk for a fun afternoon. We also have attended the Indian festival. My daughter school when She was in elementary school came to the Fish hatchery for field trips too. We find it very peaceful to walk among this beautiful scenery.

I took my adult daughters and their three children (ages 5, 6 & 6) to visit the Fish Hatchery because I am constantly challenged to find something fun and interesting to do with the little ones that doesn't cost much money. Let me tell you, this is a really cool!! The grounds are just lovely: nice walking (or jogging) paths... More

This is a great place to have a quiet date. You can purchase food pellets from a vending machine and feed the fish, no attendant necessary. If I visit the area again on a nice day, I would pack a picnic lunch and spend the afternoon. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to be.

Located in the beautiful Lehigh Parkway - this gem is the source of trout and other fish of all ages - they have a baby fish area and a prize fish area, kids can purchase food from the tiny shop and feed the fish and there is a eco friendly restroom there too. A great launching off point for a... More

My Husband I went to the Trout Fish Hatchery and it was very interesting to see the different sizes of Trout and read all about the different kinds and colors of Trout.

We got into Allentown late in the afternoon and just needed to find a place to kill an hour and get out of the hotel before dinner. You are able to buy a large bag of fish food for a dollar. Feeding the fish with the family was very nice.

It was a nice day and we were looking for a low key activity for 4 adults - we figured, why not? If you are looking for something involved, this is not the place to go. You walk among various tanks with the tiniest of "fingerlings" to fish ready for the table. Youngsters will want to get the special "baby... More
