“Beautiful zoo”

This zoo is huge! So many cool animals. This zoo is free to get into, but a donation at the gate is appreciated. We love going every year.

“Nice Zoo for "Free"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is a nice zoo for free or a donation which they do hit you up on the way in and in there and on the way out, They had alot of good animals for a smaller zoo but some of the larger animals where hiding and could not be found. Easy layout and inexpensive snack bars leads this place to a 4 star review in my book. i would go back

“A must see if your in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

We took our son here for his 1st birthday along with our 4 yr old daughter, and they had a blast. We found out about this place from the lady at the front desk of our motel in wildwood. This place was better than I though it was going to be, since it was a free zoo.They had so many animals to see, and was very clean. For the kids first zoo experience and our son's birthday this place was an amazing place to go. We where able to take so many picture and learn about so many animals.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Cape May County Park and Zoo is a must if you are going down to Cape May or Wildwood. The park is well kept and beautiful. A nice place for the kids to play or for a picnic. Now the first time I went to the zoo I was expecting something different. A free zoo down at the shore. I thought it was going to be a petting zoo. OH NO, it is so much more. Yes they have the normal petting zoo animals but they also have a reptile house, a bird house, Lion, Tigers, Bears (oh my) cheetahs, snow leopards, camels, monkeys, etc. etc. It is well worth the visit, and it is a afternoon great spent. My favorite is the Red Panda. He is so cute. A must do at Cape May/Wildwood.
