There are a bunch of animals, exhibits and a gift shop. There are animals from all over North America, you can see them, some can be touched, you can learn their history and there is a lot to do. Neat for the kids.

I try to visit Hershey Park yearly and when I do, I also stroll through ZooAmerica. They only house animals found in North America. The suggested route takes you through the entire zoo and is a nice stroll and break from the park. Some if the enclosures seem a little small, but overall not too bad. The animals don't look... More

We got to go into the zoo part of the park and it was so nice. Problem is I went in late November. It was so cold. Loved everything we went and saw in Hershey, Pa. The animals some of them were so exotic. I would go again and take my kids.

The zoo may be smaller than some of the big zoo's around, but they have so much to offer and see. We found some keepers to talk to, enjoyed seeing so many of the animals up and about in the middle of the day. We had fun watching the ducks go up and down the waterway, some struggled a little...

This is a nice, clean, humaine zoo. Follow the "suggested route" and you will get to see all the animals. It is best to go when the zoo first opens for the day as more of the animals are active. Once it starts to get warm the animals seek out and lay down in the shade. The zoo keepers here... More

This is attached to Hershey Park but you can also do this separately. It takes about an hour and there's not much "wild" in the life shown here. I'm sure that it's placement literally in a neighborhood has something to do with this. Still families with really young children may like this experience. Admission is free if you're visiting Hershey... More

Stopped here with our admission to Hershey park with my 5 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter to take a break from the rides. My kids loved trying to find the animals ..You can feed the geese. There is also a food area with tables if u wanna eat there..
