A day at the zoo is an enjoyable visit and source of entertainment. It's not the best zoo, but it's a great place to recreate and let the kids walk around. It's a vast piece of property in a very natural setting.

I highly recommend this place for a day of fun. They also make this handicap accessible so everyone can have fun. The zoo also has a place to have a picnic with your family and friends.

The only good thing about the zoo is feeding the giraffes. My family moved out of state and I was excited to bring my kids back to this zoo, but it was a huge let down! It is overgrown which caused the mosquitoes to be horrible. There were hardly any animals out. We will go to Potawatomi in South Bend... More

This place is great ! You can get incredibly close up to the animals and they have Red Pandas !! The zoo is set up nicely and we really enjoyed the walking path and feeding the giraffes.

Both guests and animals seem to enjoy the property very much. I have never noticed so many relaxed, seemingly happy animals in a zoo before. This hit me as I gazed down upon the Red River Hog (I believe he was called) from a walkway that took me above the exhibit. After poking around for a comfy spot in clear... More

My family got together for a day at the zoo (some drove from 3 hours out of town to get here) and unfortunately it rained the entire time. The zoo exhibits were very well maintained, and there were no lines for the train or tram (because of the rain). Staff was very friendly and didn't seem to mind at all... More

I'm in Battle Creek for work and was thrilled to hear a zoo was nearby. Read the reviews beforehand and it was a mix of good and bad as usual. I thought I would see for myself. Well the bad was spot on and the only GOOD was the Giraffe experience, which was wonderful, very small in space so you... More

The zoo was working on some new habitats & because of the weather, they were stalled. Several of the animals were not in the enclosures. The best part about the trip was the giraffes & that you can feed & pet them! The whole park is stroller friendly.

Binder Park Zoo is the best zoos in the area. The animal habitats are large and offer many viewing angles of all animals. Not to mention they have a very large variety of animals to see. Feeding the Giraffes is my kids favorite thing to do.
