Had a nice time. My 5 yr old niece loved it. She enjoyed feeding the fish. My first time since I don't live on the area. Liked it a lot! Used to go to a fish hatchery in central Park as a child and an adult!

We really enjoy the fish hatchery it's a wonderful place to take the kids for free practically (small fee for fish food but you aren't required to buy food you can just observe). We go a few times a year and then walk the trails and have a picnic. Whenever we are in the area the kids beg to go... More

This fish farm is a hidden treasure, from young or old you can always learn something new here. Plus you can see where the fish you catch in local streams and ponds come from. I wonder if you could buy a few to take home for a fish tank or frying pan ? We have been here twice and always... More

Had a great visit & some exercise as well. Grandson & friend visited and was impressed with all the fish that gets stored here for spawning and adventually released to streams. Grandin enjoyed it so much he keeps wanting to go back.

We often stop here with the grandkids, just like I went there with my grandparents. You can enjoy feeding the fish that will later stock local fishing streams. There are tables you can use for a picnic, and trails nearby for a nice walk.

We watch are two young grandchildren one day a week. This is a great place to take the mood walk fo. You can buy a bag of fish food and feed the trout. The kids love the way the fish come after little morsels of food plus the nature is around you. There is a path that follows the stream... More

Fish Hatchery has been a favorite of ours since my sons were in nursery school. They are now adults and still like to visit.

The fish hatchery, actually the Li'l Lehigh Trout Nursery, is great for kids--free admission, free parking, and low-priced fish food. In Allentown's Lehigh Parkway and adjacent to an excellent trout stream, the fish hatchery and surrounding areas are great for walking, fishing (not in the hatchery, obviously), and just relaxing.
