Binder Park Zoo is a small but well done zoo. I happen to be in love with giraffes and their giraffe feeding area is super cool! Up close and personal petting, feeding and observation. I go there just for this but there are many well done exhibits, good food and it's all maintained well.

This is a great spot in Battle Creek. Lots of parking, reasonable prices, pavilions to rent or use and Wild Africa is really something to see. The look on kids faces feeding the giraffes is priceless. My family of 4 are members so we can go back anytime we like.

Small zoo but the staff was friendly. My family saw everything in 1/2 of a day, maybe I wold have felt different if we didn't pay full price to get in. If we had a discount or coupon we would probably go back.

I grew up going to zoos in Lansing and Detroit, and all I remember are hot little concrete enclosures with depressed, bored animals. Fake trees and rocks, concrete floors instead of dirt or grass, and I was SO SAD for the animals that had to live there. Binder Park Zoo is refreshing in that the animals have large, natural environments... More

This zoo is a small zoo and is best for kids in elementary school. They have mostly small animals and a few cool animals but they mostly sleep or are unavailable. The cool things is you can feed giraffes lettuce. You can walk the entire zoo in lessnthan 1 hour. The staff is ok, not mean but not exactly the... More

This is a really impressive zoo as far as it is recessed with trails through a forest like atmosphere so we have brought friends with us who aren't fans of zoos who said they would definitely want to come back. There is a swamp walk too that's at least a mile long of just nature, so good from a health... More

This was a great place if you love animals my boyfriend and I are in our early twenties and have no kids but wanted to do something so the zoo was a great option not just for kids.

Beautiful zoo. Animals are very well taken care of. Lots of walking as the zoo is very large. Plan on spending the day!

We have visited this Zoo so many times. And even had a birthday party/sleepover/breakfast with the animals for our daughter many years ago. It is probably one of the best Zoos in the nation and probably the best in the nation for its size. It is a great trip for the whole family. So many activities and so many ways... More
