“Guaranteed Moose Viewing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I really wanted to see a moose in the wild but couldn't, so this was the next best thing. Three hours is all you need to see this park. Seems to be popular with the preschool group. Along with the male and female moose they also had bears you can feed (dog food), coyotes, turtles, lynx, bobcats. It is set in a forest like park with many shade trees to keep you cool.

“Great way to spend the day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Not far from Portland, the Maine Wildlife Park is a good opportunity to see some Maine wild life up close (think moose) not close enough to touch as they are wild animals, but closer than most of us would ever be able to. It is also a park, so pleasant walking conditions in the outdoors. The cost was reasonable for my husband and I, plus the under 4 year old grandson was free. I would adviselooking at their web site to see what animals to expect. Also bring a lunch as there is a snack shack and lots of picnic tables. There are no wild animal acts, as this is not a circus, and older teens might find it less entertaining but otherwise it was well worth the trip.

“Would not recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Great place to walk but a ton of other places where you can do that and NOT have to pay to do it.
It was clean and that would be the positive thing I can say! Would not return and do again. And.... Most certainly would not encourage others to go there!

“I had a very enjoyable stroll...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a fun place to have a stroll and see the animals. It is clean and laid out well. It's no so large that children will get exhausted and fussy. The staff were friendly and willing to give information. There is a little gift shop. It's a fun day out. They often have special exhibits here.
