We go to walk around zoo often in warmer weather. We live about 1 hour away and tend to schedule all appointments on same day which sometimes leaves us some time to wait between appointments.

You wouldn't think that Salisbury MD would have a great little zoo on the river that was free would you? Well it exists! Take some time with the family or a group of friends to wander around and see the numerous exhibits.

One entrance has a large play area for children that may keep from ever seeing the zoo itself as they will not want to leave. Lots of picnic tables and grills for public use and idea in summer and winter is... More

Really enjoyed visiting this zoo, although it was hard to find. You can give a donation at the entrance. Spent a couple hours here.

Another hidden gem in Salisbury. A visit here is always among our stops. Kids love it and with the playground and picnic areas nearby, this is a great family afternoon adventure.

Always visit any zoos I come across when traveling. This is the #1 small zoo around. It doesn't smell like some others I've come across. Admission is by whatever donation you care to give. Be sure to get a map so you don't miss anything! The monkeys aren't on the main pathway & you never want to miss the monkey... More
