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.

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
