Friendly employees. Animals are all great. Wonderful attraction. Well worth an afternoon of time. They keep all of the animals active which is interesting with some of the techniques we seen used. The Binder zoo employees are wonderful. From learning about the lemurs to enjoying a ride and talking with the carosel worker we learned things that we never would... More

This was a very nice and well-run zoo. I liked how the Africa part was set up- the animals had a lot of space. It is a smaller zoo- they don't have a lot of animals, but they were very well cared for. It is worth the trip just to be able to feed the giraffes!

This zoo has lots of land! They have limited animals. We spent five hours walking around looking at all the animals. There is giraffes close enough to feed.

first time visiting and we were so impressed. Animals were in enclosures as opposed to cages and the area where you could feed the Giraffes was really cool. Great area for kids with petting zoo, carosel and snack bar.

I've seen this place grow from a petty zoo to a full blown wonder of a zoo. The attractions are many and it's such a nice family place. The only down side is the admittance, I would have given 5 stars, but I thing the entry cost for families is a bit high. If you can't make it to the... More

This was our first trip to Binder Park Zoo. The weather was very questionable that morning, so there were no big crowds to deal with. The park staff was very polite and helpful. Although it was one of the smaller zoos I have been to as far as types and numbers of exhibits, we really enjoyed the open range exhibits... More

OMG this zoo was terrific. very user friendly and child friendly. It was a bit pricey for a zoo but then i have no idea what a zoo cost? I live close to the nations capital and ours is free. Highly recommend it. Will go again next year for sure.

We try to come to this zoo every year. We love the natural setting. Most of the zoo is in the woods. The wild Africa part does have an open plain and it is nice to see the animals have room to run -- and fun, this year, to see the new baby giraffes. We love it that this zoo... More
