I took my 6 year old niece, her friend, my 3 year old nephew, and my 7 month old baby. The zoo is the perfect size for little legs, they wont get bored from walking It was a great day! Even the little ones enjoyed it! Definitely going back again this summer! Love how all of the animals are saved!

While visiting New Jersey there were 7 of my family members who visited the zoo. While it is a small zoo it is great to see so many animals having been rescued. It is fun to be able to feed the animals popcorn and very affordable admission price. Young kids will enjoy getting up close to animal enclosures.

I gotta start by responding to some people who have noted that the zoo is small and that there aren't a lot of animals. Thank God!!!!! This is a home of last resort for abandoned/surrendered, rescued, abused or ailing animals. I would be happiest if the zoo was empty as a testament that animals were treated better. As it is,...

Inexpensive day outing. Get there early to be able to park free near the Zoo; otherwise, you'll be <1/4 mile away. We always buy popcorn there to feed the animals. Operated as a non-profit rescue haven for domestic and unusual pets as well as zoo animals. Cats and dogs are available to rescue adoption. Grandson has ALL their animals as... More

We took the girls here and had a nice time. It's small and personal. It was inexpensive and everyone was able to feed the animals. The bears were everyones favorite. Well, except my girlfriend. The pigs were her favorite. Feeding popcorn to bears was a once in a lifetime experience.

Very nice trip for the children. Not to expensive and can feed the animals. We always bring carrots and apples for the goats and cows. This is run all on donations and they do a great job with the animals.

Wonderful place to take children and appreciate the animals! The animals are mostly from other zoos around the country who are now retired. They are well taken care of and the children love feeding the animals the popcorn.

This is a fun outing for the kids (my teenager even enjoyed it). It was a little muddy walking around with all the melted snow but the kids didn't mind. Went through about 8 large boxes of popcorn! There are a lot more animals there now then when I went as a kid. Some eat right from your hand. looked... More
