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

Very small but have interesting things. A small building where there is air conditioning and a few animals. Won't take long to look through so great for small children.

The zoo is free. Not many of the free zoos left. Small for the area and the animals look unhappy. The zoo is very clean and tidy. Beautiful location - Let's give them more $$ to expand......

Typical small city zoo with iron cage bars and listless sad looking animals. The two wolves are always agitated. They seem unhappy. The snow leopard is so pathetic It can bring a tear to one's eye. It is overweight and just lays there. The people who work there are doing their best; but they are limited by money and material.... More

I found Lincoln Park (the zoo is inside of the park) interesting and a nice respite from the city that surrounds it. However the "zoo" itself is kind of a joke with few animal cages and even fewer animals occupying the space. The real laugh was when we came across Bambi and family who was sponsored by a local hunting... More

This was a great stop for our 2 yo grandson. All new sidewalks in 2011. We should support a zoo like this. Prairie dogs, eagle, owl, hawk, bison, wolves, deer, sheep, goats, crane, ducks, geese, turkeys, are all here. Cougar and leopard were not to be seen today. Our grandson loved it! Thanks to the City of Manitowoc. Don't just... More

This was a very nice zoo for the size. It would be a good stopping place to let the kids get out and walk around if you're headed to Door County up Hwy 42. The entrance fee was nominal for adults and kids. The zoo was very well kept. We stopped as the last leg of a girls weekend and... More

It's been a long time since I've been to the Zoo, and nothing has changed or been added. The Zoo setting is very nice, but the most disturbing thing we saw were cow legs in the Wolf pen. Other people also were commenting on that. They were laying everywhere, it wouldn't look so bad if they took the time to... More
