  • What a gem. Wi this hot summer had it must have been 10 degrees or more cooler with all the trees around. Great climbers and swings and slides 
  • Terrific park and place for picnic with the family!!! We went today with our little one and it was great. A bit cool because the weather is changing. However if you dress appropriately it is just fine...  read more »
  • Thirty minutes or half a day, there is something for everyone. The petting farm, the playground, walk among the ducks, hide-and-seek forest, beautiful lakeside shoreline, there's so much to do. Pack a...  read more »
  • We visited Happy Rolph's as a family on 12 August 2016. It has a well kept animal area. 9/11 memorial trail in front of the lake view is a quite place to relax in the afternoon. It is really kind of them for not keeping an entry fee. I have been to many less attractive places with a heavy entry fee.
  • Not quite what we had expected. Initially thought this was going to be a petting zoo of sorts. There are a few animals and there are places to feed a few of them. It was really hot the day we visited, so not much activity there. A few nice trails around to go for a walk, so that was a major plus. Nice playground for the kids too.
  • Take the kids to see goats, ponies, llamas, rabbits and chickens, play on the swings and slides, have a picnic, see the ducks and turtles, all for free. You used to be able to feed the animals by buying kibble from little gumball type machines but not anymore. It has a nice view of Lake Ontario.
  • Great place to go with family and friends! One of the few place one can still go for free!!! Great spot for taking little ones to introduce them to the animals as well as getting to walk on the trail and along the water. I highly recommend it for a family outing.
  • The zoo wasn't the best but all the ducks, geese and the tribute to the 27 trees planted with plaques for the victims of 9/11 was very impressive, so bring duck food or coins to purchase some food and have fun.
