“Great Place To Take The Kids”

Reviewed July 13, 2013

Holtsville Ecology Center is a great place to go with kids. First of all, IT'S FREE! They have lots of animals for the kids to see, including 2 brown bears. There is also a playground and a public pool. With everything so expensive, it's a great place that gives your wallet a break. Oh, and the icecream man is always there!

A sanctuary for animals its a learning place for children and adults. The animals are well looked after and upclose and personal for the children. Has playgrounds for kids to continue having fun.

We visited the Holtsville Animal Preserve at the Holtsville Ecology Center last weekend with my 18 month old grandson. He had such a wonderful time viewing all the animals, llamas, chickens, peacocks, rabbits, goats, bears and more. They also have a park with slides etc which he had
a great time on.

If you want some outdoor fun watching and learning a little more about the animals in our northeast territory? This is surely a place to visit!!! Also a nice walking path and nice botanical garden...
