You go and see thousands of fish and the kids can feed them, you can also walk along the river that they release them into, relaxing place to visit with younger children

We used to go here a lot when I was a kid. Since I was just in the Lehigh Valley for a HS reunion I stop at a lot of old favorite places. The setting is very nice with lots of trees and the creek. The fish tanks are now covered with netting due to smart birds snacking on the... More

The fish hatchery is a great place to walk on a nice day. We take the grandchildren down and they love to see the fish. Nice afternoon outing.

You can buy trout chow to feed the fish and see them in all stages of development from fingerling on up. The informational plaques will increase your knowledge about the fish. It's a nice place to go outside and wander around. There's also an Indian museum nearby.

We took a day trip to Allentown from the Philadelphia area, and this was our first stop. It was very easy to get to, as it was less than 5 minutes off of I-476, 22 and I-78. The hatchery is a park with several pools set up with different types of trout that you can feed. Price-wise, this is hard... More

Something fun to do during the summer or fall. The kids enjoyed it. We would go back again. Especially if we had family in from out of town

Great for kids. You can buy food to feed the fish or just hang out and watch the fly fishermen on the adjacent Little Lehigh River trying to catch and release trout.

The perfect place for 'quiet time' for you, the family, a date where you can simply just 'be'! Its cheap yet fulfilling, easy to park, walk and have quality time to walk calmly, discuss events without worrying how much will the next drink cost or how much to tip. Yes you can spend some change and do some good feeding... More
