Cute, free zoo. The kids enjoyed looking at the animals. The Barn was open to pet some of the animals and the staff was super friendly. We'd stop by again to stretch our legs and look around on our next trip.

Took my girls (ages 5 & 7) and had a good time. Upon entering the zoo we put our suggested donation in the tube and started exploring. We saw a few animals o our way in, explores the building that housed a bunch of different small animals. The girls like the new hive the best! Then we explored the rest of the zoo including a play area. Next time we are in Manitowoc and have an hour or two we will be back.

It's a very nice little zoo, great place to spend a few hours with little ones. Admission is free, so that's a huge plus. Not nearly as big as the big zoos in Milwaukee, Madison, or Green Bay, but it isn't trying to be. The animals looked happy and well cared for.

If you are looking for a nice place to take younger children this is a perfect sized zoo. The park has blacktopped pathways, a nice variety of animals for a small zoo, and is affordable. There is free parking at the entrance. People are asked to consider making a donation at the front entrance (suggested $1-2 per person). The zoo has prairie dogs, bison, bear, cougar, wolves, deer, various birds, goats, and some inside animal displays (fish, frogs, snakes). There is also a butterfly garden, small vending/snack area, and a barn with farm animals. Check the zoo's website for updates on special holiday events held throughout the year.

We enjoyed our stop at this small zoo which simply asks for a donation as you enter. Since it was winter, we did not see m any animals, but those that lik e winter were active. Bison came right up to the fence, timber wolves, cougar, hawks, and many other birds . Nice walk through a lovely area.

The only interesting animals that we saw were the cougar, and the black bear. It’s a small zoo. It kept my two nieces under the age of three entertained.

So... my Chicago born and raised kids have been to the fabulous big city zoos several times. Although impressive, they leave me feeling exhausted, broke, and well....annoyed . I am also a little unsure if the animals are too happy. This beautiful little zoo is wonderful! Small and quaint it still entertained my two 7 year olds and 6 year olds, granted I did warn them ahead of time it would be a bit different than what they were use to but I swear I think it was so much better!!! While there are obviously less exhibits the animals were actually out and about and visible (not hiding from all the noise and thousands of people). I was able to enjoy my children and communicate with them and see and hear my budding first grade readers take on the information boards and have time and peace to tackle them (something that wouldn't ever happen at a large busy city zoo). I felt refreshed and enjoyed the nature and animals instead of annoyed by pedestrian traffic and constant marketing of expensive items found at large zoos. In summary, I had a blast, my kids enjoyed themselves exploring the zoo, playing in playground, and seeing barn yard animals . Please go and donate generously so places like this can continue to thrive. Good for a couple of hours but you can extend your day by taking a sandwich and sitting on one of the many benches or picnic tables by the playground. Enjoy.

We usually take a picnic every summer near the lake and after walk through Lincoln Park Zoo! The kids love being so close to nature!

The Lincoln Park Zoo is a great afternoon if you have younger children. They have a few animals, a play area for children, and it's free.

This is a tiny little zoo, but very well maintained, and the animals look well cared for. It only took us about 30 minutes to walk around, so it made for a nice stop.
