We visited during Labour day weekend. For a small zoo, we were impressed the the variety of animals; they all appeared to be in good condition. They have had to retire their monkey house due to its need for renovations; we were sorry not to...More

Cherry brook has the potential to be an amazing zoo with a upgrade. I take the kids every year to see all the different animals and new ones. It is something to do and there is a small mini golf area.

The zoo was interesting but is in dire need of an upgrade. It is funded by the city and through admissions , but the buildings and cages and the grounds need a lot of maintenance. Compared to other zoos we have visited, this one was...More

Cozy little zoo with a limited number of animals in relatively small enclosures. Definitely needs some upgrades but you are able to get pretty close to all the animals.

Considering we were expecting a tiny little zoo, I'm giving this a five because we were beyond shocked when we realized how many different animals they have. Their mission is to take in animals that need a place to live. Huge lions and tigers. They...More

I was sad to see the animals here, but I understand. The trail of regret is very powerful and worth a look.

The zoo has a wheel chair ramp that goes down and into the zoo, but the zoo's trails are very rough in spots with steep hills and some tree roots on the paths.
