Yay zoo

We had a great time at this wonderful zoo. My five year old especially liked riding the cassoulet with Papa and the train. The guarded were also a hit.

It's a nice place to go-especially if your a member (better rates). A lot of interaction(feeding) with some of the animals. A little over priced if not a member in my opinion but, still lots to see. Food is usually good in all areas. Train is fun although wish it was longer. Tram to Wild Africa is nice. Gift shops... More

This zoo is very nice. There are a diverse amount of animals, and a tram that takes you to "Africa" to feed the giraffes. My kids like the tunnels to visit the rabbits, I enjoy the peacocks that roam free. Plan on wearing your walking shoes, it's spread out!

We spent the day at Binder during their annual Zoo Boo. They did amazing job decorating the zoo. They carved hundreds of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. $11.50 admission fee includes admission to zoo, token for Trick or Treat alley, unlimited rides on carousel, train and hayride. Also includes 5 tickets for games in the carnival section. The trees... More

Went to the annual Zoo Boo for the Halloween themed visit. Great for kids, small to teens. We had a blast. You gotta go! They just added dingos to the zoo. They have over 600 animals there. Yuou will find it a wonderful visit.

Binder Park Zoo is a very clean, well kept zoo. The exhibits don't make you feel sorry for the poor animals, like others who have the poor pacing back and forth cats that look stressed or the depressed bears. The animals actually look happy, they play and the sense you feel is upbeat and not sad. The park has sections,... More

My first visit to Binder Park Zoo was as a kid in 1982 and I fell in love with the landscape. As an adult, I've been taking my girls to the zoo since 2003 and it gets better every year. They are notorious for their awesome Face Painters and the free roaming peacocks that like to eat french fries!! My... More

Big experierences for the whole family! Feed giraffes, ride the train, climb a dinasour, watch the Bears play in the new bear the exhibit. Or you can check out the wolves from a raked walkway or ride the Merry-go-round. We have taken our children there and now our grandchildren enjoy the monthly visits. Zoo Boo and Christmas also a special... More

What a great zoo! It's obviously small because Battle Creek is small, but well kept up. Feeding the Giraffes in Africa is our favorite part. We go to the zoo numerous times throughout the season. Our kids love it and quite frankly - my husband and I love it too!
