If you have kids under six and you've never been to the Fish Hatchery shame on you. It's a delightful and very inexpensive trip. You can watch the fish swim in their ponds for free or cough up a buck for a bag of food and feed them. Kids love watching the fish chase after the food and splashing all... More

A fun place to take little kids. Buy a bag of fish food and enjoy feeding the trout in the hatching ponds. Located along Cedar Creek, it's a nice outing and a good place to take a walk. A favorite of mine since I was a kid myself!

My Dad took my here as a little girl and now I take my friends kids and I brought my boyfriend here too. Love this place. Feeding the fish is fun. One suggestion can you have food to purchase for when the office is closed? Went on a Sunday and couldn't feed the fish. Thank you!

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.
