It was a gorgeous day in Green Bay and I decided to take a ride to the Green Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. What a great idea. My 7 year old grandson had a blast.

Great safe place to take your family to enjoy a day in the fresh air. The Bay Beach area as a whole is a sanctuary for family time in a larger city.

We had recently gone to the NEW Zoo with a 1-year old. The free Wildlife Sanctuary compares favorably. Animals were more local, and there was plenty to look at as well as some indoor activities where they can play around a bit. And being free, we will probably visit more often than we will go to the NEW Zoo.

This is free to go to. It's a very nice walk around the park. There is an indoor space that lets kids explore whats around them and learn about it. Outside there is a nice paved trail with a few animals you can see and some play areas for kids along the way. They have a beautiful lake with a... More

Great free attraction. Family friendly and safe place to walk and see wildlife and forest. There is also an indoor nature center and a place to feed geese. Kids and adults will enjoy this place and the price is right - free.

A great place to go to feed ducks and geese. There's no admission or parking fees, just the cost to buy corn to feed them. The wildlife sanctuary also has a zoo habitat. Great place to take kids and family.

What a great resource for the city. A place to learn about animals and nature. You can get a nice idea of how animals thrive in their natural habitats. It is also a safe haven for animals found in the city. Frail birds, snakes, turtles all can be brought to the wildlife sanctuary.
