“Great zoo!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Wonderful place to take children and appreciate the animals! The animals are mostly from other zoos around the country who are now retired. They are well taken care of and the children love feeding the animals the popcorn.

“Great day for the kids”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

This is a fun outing for the kids (my teenager even enjoyed it). It was a little muddy walking around with all the melted snow but the kids didn't mind. Went through about 8 large boxes of popcorn! There are a lot more animals there now then when I went as a kid. Some eat right from your hand. looked tough for people pushing strollers but that could have just been because of the wet ground.

We've been going for years. It is a fun, inexpensive family adventure. The animals wandering the property make this an exciting and interactive experience!

“Grandson loves it!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Nice local zoo for young children to get up close to animals and just large enough for them without having to travel large areas to see them. Granted its not the Bronx, Philly, or Washington zoos but save those for when they are a little older and can appreciate a large zoo. Cape May zoo is also a nice "beginner" zoo for young children.

“So great to see happy animals.”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

All of the animals were rescue animals and a lot of variety. Tigers, ponies, monkeys, bears and more. While not room for free roaming, Pens are large, clean and well maintained. This sanctuary is a happy place for the animals and fun to visit.
