This zoo has lots of personality, the animals and the staff seem very friendly and interested in their visitors. The animals were all active and moving around in different ways. The staff was happy to talk to visitors and explain what they were doing while they worked. Kids can (for a token fee) feed all of the the animals that are not dangerous and they love too do it. The zoo appears to have been built on an old farm and is now in the process of being upgraded and expanded. It is a very informal and fun atmosphere. Great for anyone who loves animals, probably best for kids twelve and under.

Visited today and was very surpised with many aspects of this zoo. It had several species I wouldn't have expected. You could get up close to animals following clear trails. Every exibit was well maintained and the animals looked very loved and cared for. Surpised at the size of this local Zoo. I visited with my daughter and two small grandsons. My 1 1/2 year old grandson roamed freely laughing and feeding the animals. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit
and can't wait to return. My only complaint is when I came accross Jimmie and saw a sign that I could feed him if I went to the admissions. giraffes have always been my favorite animals all my life. I ran back to the admissions to find out that you can only feed him on the weekends :( I wonder how many other's have done the same and suggest a small note informing patrons of this information. None the less I got my exercise for the day and I'm giving 5 stars because we loved this Zoo so much. See you soon Jimmie! On the weekend and hopfully in your new home.

We love Plumpton Park! The zoo is small enough to create a uniquely intimate experience but diverse enough to offer a great selection of animals. We love getting to feed Jimmy the Giraffe. Would love to see an expanded snack bar/entrance some day.

nice set up and trails are easy to follow along with map. However, if you are taking a wagon or wheelchair it might be alittle difficult to travel though the thick stones. Beautiful 3 year old tigers and loved seeing the animals names so that they could interact with you.
