For the size of this zoo, it is fantastic. It has such a relaxing feel to it, it never seems to be crowded becasue of the lay-out and beautiful landscaping. hand feeding the giraffe's is certainly the highlight of the experience, and looking over the "savannah" to the other animals is really cool. a definite gem in western michigan.

My grandkids love the Zoo Boo! We go every year. The carousel is always a big hit. Binder Park is the best zoo we have in southwest Michigan. We like it better than John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids. There are nice walking trails and the animal enclosures are always clean and well kept.

For a town of the size of Battle Creek, this zoo is really something. The African exhibt is GREAT and the animals are roaming uncaged in the Savannah. It is an ideal place for children or adults.

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
