I want to start by letting you know we are traveling everywhere in our state and connecting states and visiting Zoo's. We have a 1 1/2 year old and a teen. I am giving reviews of our experience at each Zoo we visit. Binder Park Zoo is an average Zoo, the day we went it was a nice warm day.... More

Been coming to this zoo since I was a baby and it is truly a great zoo! Different than other zoos... Has black bears, cheetah, snow leopards, giraffes (which you can feed), and soon are getting Lions! A little pricy but worth it!

Clean, friendly, so much to see. There is a wide variety of animals to see. There is a train that goes around the zoo. A tram that takes you to wild Arica, as soon as you step off the tram you literally feel like you are in Africa. You see zebras, giraffes, and ostriches .

Enjoyed our visit here a lot. Entrance price is a little more then some zoos but it includes a tram ride to wild Africa. Wild Africa is really worth going to during your visit especially for a close up visit with the giraffes. Bring extra money for carousel rides, feeding opportunities, and a train ride if you have younger children.... More

If you haven't visited Binder Park Zoo, you are in for a pleasant surprise. It is a beautiful setting and you will see animals in large areas, not small cages. Ride the free tram to the Africa area and you can see zebras and gazelle on the savanna or feed the giraffes. It doesn't feel like you are in Battle... More

This place was a real surprise! We were in town for a soccer tournament and looking for a way to spend a few hours and this was perfect. Lots of tree cover, tons of cool animals, in a natural, but well organized setting. Don't miss feeding the giraffes in Wild Africa! In the middle of Michigan yet you feel far... More

We visited this zoo with our grandchildren and great grandchildren and there was something for everyone. My husband and I enjoyed it just as much as the little ones did. It is located in a beautiful wooded setting, which allows for a peaceful natural habitat for all the animals. There is a petting zoo that the children just loved, there... More

My dad and I visited this zoo in July 2012 and absolutely loved it. We both visited with the intention of taking photos and were not disappointed. The animals are spread out and it's a very large zoo, so wearing sneakers or good walking shoes is a must.There is an area to feed giraffes and many shady areas so visiting... More
