Binder Park Zoo is right off the highway. I saw a sign and went. It's a nice medium sized zoo. It has kangaroos and wallobys and other animals on 1/2 of it and then I realized it had an African Safari type experience. What a treat! You can walk to the entrance of that but why bother when you can... More

Had a blast at kids party held at the zoo. They brought a couple of animals to see, and we were able to visit the rest of the zoo afterwards. Love the African Village. Great place for small kids as well.

Another great Michigan zoo. The park is laid out very well and easily walkable. Exhibits are well-maintained and close together. Have to take the train to Africa - don't walk it like others, especially if you have little ones or strollers!

I like that this zoo seems very well kept and the animals have large comfortable enclosures. However, that means that as a viewer, the animals were really far away or barely visable. There was a lot of walking and not many exciting animals. Worth the trip to feed the giraffes, but overall kind of boring.

My husband and I took our grandson to Binder Park and we had as much fun as he did! I even rode the merry-go- round with him. Feeding the Giraffes was a big highlight also. They have a great variety of animals and events for people of all ages. You can spend an entire day there and never get bored!

We've been to several zoo's around the state and this zoo is by far our favorite. The park is clean and the exhibits are nice. The park is mostly shaded with trees and offers a couple of shops and places to eat. The Africa exhibit makes you feel like you're no longer in Michigan. Feeding the giraffes is always the... More

We always visit zoos in our travels and still enjoy our local one each summer. Binder Park is clean, innovative and the people care about the animals. Our Grandparent membership pays for itself with days of fun with the kids! The giraffe feeding station is the family favorite and the new bear exhibit is great! Highly recommend for out of... More

Been members for numerous years. As a family we love going back many times throughout the year. The animals they have are very well cared for and it shows! Guaranteed to have a good time!

We had a family of 14 in August. It is very nice, it's spacious & natural feeling. I think it is more enjoyable than the Detroit zoo because at that zoo we feel like we are looking at a big concrete mess of animals smothered into the city. We have fed the giraffes at both zoos, Binder Park is casual,... More

After checking out from firekeepers casino we stopped by the zoo to spend the day. The kids had a blast on the carousel riding the tram and looking at the animals. Feeding the giraffes was awesome and we're all looking forward to going again.
