wonderful small zoo

Donations taken for admittance. Nice paths for walking or strollers. A nice variety of animals, some you can get pretty close too.

Love the groundhogs. Plenty to see and it is well maintained. There is no one collecting money when you go in, but they do ask for donations.

Who can complain about free admission, beautiful serene surroundings, happy zoo animals to include a barn w/WI farm animals you can reach out and touch? Swings and picnic areas for families and kids, what a great place. Don't forget to thank your stay by donating a buck or two in the donations containers on your way out!

This Zoo had animals that were wounded or found abandoned and nursed back to health. You only pay what you like as it is donations only. It is run and operated by Businesses and citizens of the city of Manitowoc.

A very small zoo but you can't beat the price. A great place to enjoy on a tight budget. Most animals were within view (not sleeping in a hidden corner).

My family & I visited the zoo for the very first time on Labor Day. Free Admission & Free Parking. Zoo accepts donations. Nothing special to write home about here. There is only about a dozen or so animals to see. So if you are looking for a small family friendly zoo then this is for you. You can browse... More

A nice little zoo for the family to visit no charge but has a donation tank. Seem to be making some much needed renovations and could use more animals and goats could use some activities they looked very bored and getting fat !

My daughter and I stopped at the zoo after visiting someone in the area. The park is nice with picnic area and playground. The zoo is small and the enclosures for the animals are small (probably because the park is landlocked.) We checked it out because my daughter is a preschool teacher and wants options for field trips. I suggested... More

Small zoo in a small park. Its free but asks for donations. They have Prarie Dogs, a Wolf, Snow Leopard, Cougar, Bear, Buffalo, Farm Animals, Birds of Prey, Reptiles, and a play ground. Cages are setup for good views of the animals. Interactive stations where the kids can play and learn about the animals. None of the food places and... More
