It's honestly so cute. I live near here and i love to go see the fish and watch them grow. They house trout and relase them when they're old enough. You can buy a small or large bag of fish food, too! Small is .50 cents and a large bag is $1.

This is a great day trip for you & younger kids and older. You can buy fish food and walk around and feed the fish. Nice outdoor area to spend some time in the fresh air. Near Leigh High Valley hospital. Indian Pow Wow held down the street in the Spring. Must go to see! So nice and historic! Beautiful area.

This was kid's favorite part of our trip. The vending machine took our money (the house wasn't open) but nice workers helped us by giving us a bag of fish food plus another one. Kid enjoyed feeding the fish and watching them splash at the surface. Nice and enjoyable, and free. Definitely recommended, definitely would come back here again.

The hatchery is on a beautiful piece of land. It has some great landscaping as well. It was amazing how many fish were there. For a small fee(I think $2) we were able to purchase a bag of food and feed the fish. It is not a place where you will spend all day, but if you are looking for a cheap hour or two, this is the place to be. Even my (almost) teenage daughter enjoyed it.

We made a stop here on the way home.Our grandkids enjoyed feeding the trout.No cost to go here other than the fish food if you wanted to feed them.We wanted to go to the Indian Museum but found it closed.

This was a little disappointing. I thought there would be more pools and different fish. The signage was good, it did explain a lot; however there really was not much to see.

I brought my 2.5 year old and for $2 in fish food she spent over 2 hours running around and throwing the fish some food. She loved it, I loved it, she slept great too! It was very clean and you could probably bring a little picnic there. Great cheap little spot for the family.

As a lifetime fisherman it is a real treat to see where the trout that are stocked in Pennsylvania streams are bred and raised. You can even buy some fish food and feed them which is quite fun. Is very easy to find and less than two miles off of the Cedar Crest Exit of Interstate 78. Head south on Cedar Crest Blvd to a left onto Fish Hatchery Road. Down the road about 1/4 mile is parking for the fish hatchery. Plan about two hours, but take more time and stroll along a beautiful stream which passes right past the Hatchery. The grounds are fairly level and easy to walk and I imagine that they are wheel chair accessible.

I go here often(weather permitting) to walk. It is 6 miles round trip. there are a few hills but the majority is level. And if you want to walk less, there are a couple of places, one of them a covered bridge, where you can cross the river and walk back. I also come here with my grandchildren. For 50 cents you can buy a bag of fish food and spend a pleasant half hour feeding the fish.
