Binder Park Zoo is a must see if traveling in the Battle Creek area. The staff is friendly and helpful. The exhibits are well planned. One of the family favorite parts is Wild Africa. Make sure to stop by and feed the giraffes. Nearby picnic pavilions make it easy for groups to gather. The Zoo is also open for special... More

This is a great zoo for the entire family. Great exhibits but the true highlight is Wild Africa. They have gazelles, zebras, giraffes, etc. You even can feed the giraffes ( for a fee though.). There are just enough things to do to spend the whole day there but small enough you can actually see the whole thing. This is... More

African Safari at the zoo is one of the finest. After going to the Cincinnati and St. Louis zoos, which are supposed to be the finest in the US, Binder is, for a small zoo, is right up there with them. If you are in the area it is worth seeing.

Great use of existing landscape to build the zoo around and within. Board walk and African Safari are outstanding.

For a city of its size, Battle Creek can boast about its wonderful zoo. Binder Park Zoo is a great Spring through Fall family attraction. Family members from larger cities, with their own zoos, will drive here to visit Binder Park Zoo.

Battle Creek is a small town to have such a large zoo like Binder. It's worth a trip for anyone and especially if you have children or grandchildren. Don't miss the wild Africa section.

This is a jewel of a zoo. Make sure to leave time for the giraffes. I've traveled all over to "famous" zoos and still love Binder the best.

My family has been to many Zoo's and this definitely ranks and the very top. Lots of shade and trees makes you feel like you are in the middle of a jungle! Loved the tram that took you to Wild Africa. We made a whole day of this park and the kids absolutely loved it. So many animals to see!... More

We went to the Binder Park Zoo in August while on vacation. Giraffes are my favorite animals and for a very small fee you can feed them. It's a great photo opportunity. Be prepared to walk though at one point we thought we'd never get out of the African jungle but it was definitely worth it.

We took our grandchildren to the ZooBoo and they loved it!! What an experience, to walk through the darkened zoo with hundreds and hundreds of pumpkins, and kids in costumes. Great experience! The zoo is also a great place in the summer, complete with summer camp for kids, great learning experience!
