We were visiting from San Diego and, yes, we have a great zoo, but I must say, this was a very pleasant pleasant surprise for us. The grounds cared for very well. There are very nice board-walks through a wooded area. animals look good.. healthy and beautiful. There is a great variety of animals.
I would suggest that if animals are off-exhibit, that a sign be posted such. There is an occasional sign (inconsistent) but you waste a lot of time searching and searching for an animal when it is not there. that is irritating. More food or at least a little patio restaurant is suggested.
The park/zoo is free but there is a contribution collector at the entry gate at parking. There is a children's park just outside the entrance. It is very feasible for a family to bring their kids to play on equipment and have a little picnic there. But you would probably have to bring your own food because I don't think there's any restaurant there... even at the zoo.
It was a beautiful day and a beautiful visit and I think the checkout clerk at the Shoprite for recommending it. The people of New Jersey have been so very friendly, nice and helpful. They are very pleased that we really enjoyed coming to New Jersey there is so much to offer here.
