Easy to find and plenty of parking. Trout to the infinity. The staff was moving fish from one of the pools to another so it could be cleaned. That was interesting to watch.

This is a great place to take in nature- not far from the busy highway but secluded too. The fish are always hungry! Be sure to walk toward the far end to purchase fish food from the vending machine or visit the small wildlife center...More

We watched a red tail hawk dive into the creek and fly away with a large trout in its talons - an amazing sight to see. Outstanding start to walking path along Cedar Creek. A true gem hidden in the center of Lehigh Valley.

45 min may do it. It would be a nice break to Stretch legs. There is a big parking lot just steps from The fish. If you buy fish food there, bring lots of hand sanitizer. It's potent.
