This zoo is great for kids, couples , any time of the year! They are building new exhibits and have enlarged the zoo since I was last here in 09. The Aviary house by far was he best experience ever with the Pink Flamingoes flying right up to you! Some animals where inside for the winter but my wife and... More

We love this zoo. We visit every month even in the winter. It's clean and fun. It's good for young children or even adults. In the summer there is a carousel, train ride, and rock climbing wall but there is a fee for them but not the zoo.

This is my favorite zoo experience hands down! The layout is amazing, there is plenty of opportunities for shade, there are no gimmicks to distract from the animal experience, and there is more than a zoo. For a place that runs on donations...and we always leave a good one, it is well worth taking the day and enjoying the park.... More

The zoo is free to enter, but give a donation and help keep this place going. So many amazing animals to see, great set- up, animals to feed. This is a great place to visit with the family! We all enjoyed it!

No fee zoo. Large variety of animals and for the most part in a natural setting. Great way for a family to spend time together.

Traditionally free - donations encouraged - this zoo is very user friendly. It is simpler and does present lesser variety than many zoos but yet it has a lot to offer. Our most recent trip to this zoo was in winter weather but still there was a lot to see . The parking is ample. For kids there are playgrounds.... More

Enjoyed our family day trip to see the animals and spend Easter together! Donations suggested. The animals were out and enjoying the beautiful day. Lots to do for kids and adults alike.

Its hard to believe the Cape May Zoo subsists on donations, but it does -- and its worth every penny! My boyfriend and I decided to stop in on a whim and we are glad we did. The animals appear to be well cared for, cages were clean, and animals appeared happy. Something else notable is how close you actually... More

Can you believe that this facility is free. It is so well run and clean that we will return again when we have more time to spend. Please give yourself at least 2 hours and have good walking shoes. You will not regret a visit here.
