This zoo is free! They have donation boxes all over which is nice. The money go towards bettering the zoo! My son and I always have fun. They even have a big park right out front. If you're around you should go!

The Cape May park and zoo is wonderful! It's free to visit, but they do ask for a little donation. It's always very clean. They even let their peacocks and guinea hens walk around! And if you look hard enough you might see a wild squirrel or deer far back in the woods! The park there is lovely and they... More

Was in Cape may courthouse park and zoo during July 2012 and took my daughter. She had a blast walking around the park and zoo. It's free for both of the park and zoo as well. There's plenty of animals to see and it's quite a great time for all.

Another great visit to the zoo. Read about the new addition of the 3 year old twin lions and had to go see them. Not disappointed, both were out sunning themselves and we got to see them. The place is well maintained and the animals seem to be well taken care of. New additions are the births of a giraffe... More

Take a break from the Amusement Pier and visit. All of the animals seem well cared for and the park seems well maintained.

We visited here from our Lewes Delaware (separate review) ferry trip as it was the only thing that we had the time to do before going back. We had to take a cab here, not inexpensive, but the zoo is free and I have to say it's one of the best kept zoos I've ever been to. The exhibits are... More
