A Field Trip staple

Very good especially for kids in the 3-10 range. Don't forget to take a little walk on the trails after feeding the fish. A good way to spend an hour.

This is a nice area to walk around with your kids, feed the fish, and then have a picnic in the grass. Not overwhelming with a lot to do but something to fill an easy, slow, summer day.

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
