“Depressing”

Pymatuning Deer Park
Reviewed April 24, 2014

There does not seem to be enough qualified staff to care for the animals properly. Saw at least one animal with an open wound on neck. The bears are kept in a concrete enclosure that they can hardly even see out of. The marmoset display was rather amazing since you can see them so well, however the reason you can see them is because their cage is very small for the number they have. I left feeling very sad for the animals.

Deer park is a fun walk on well shaded pathways where you'll see some common animals such as deer and some more exotic like a panther. My children liked the train and the petting area. I liked the peaceful setting.

We had so much fun!! We bought treats for all of the animals too. Would definitely go again! The giftshop had something for everyone also.

I was sad about the conditions of the enclosures of the animals. I did not see any fresh water or any sign of regular food for the animals. The bears where down in this "PIT" type enclosure. The animals were in swander. I am a big fan of animal parks and felt that by paying my way for my family and I did nothing more than supported the poor conditions. I was sorry we went.
