“A fine zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I am not a person who gravitates to animals normally, but what I enjoy about this zoo is that they have many and diverse animals. The animals look well cared for; they are in natural surroundings, and they actively move around. (If I am going to look at a panther, bison, or peacock, I want to see him moving around, not sleeping.) For a zoo that doesn't charge admission (but accepts donations), it is a really nice place to visit with or without children. I have taken my children there more than once and will no doubt go next time I am in Salisbury.

“Nice little zoo...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Really, I should have given a higher rating to this little zoo. It's probably "good" as opposed to "average". My kids had a great time, but it's definitely geared toward the 5th grade (maybe 6th) and under. Well maintained, and wonderful playground area just outside the park gate. Worth taking a picnic and spending a few hours...very shaded and several photo ops.

“Worth your Time to See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This smaller zoo was a wonderful side stop to our weekend beach trip. There are a wide variery of exotic animals and it has a gift shop and a cafe if you want to have a snack. The proceeds from the gift shop and the cafe benefit the animals of the zoo.
