  • The wild life and free roaming for children is a day of great fun! However, all ages will enjoy this local destination.  more »
  • It's not a large zoo, but big enough for a few hours, regardless of the age of the group. It may be the only zoo in CT, so convenience is definitely a factor. Great space for picnic or kids party too.  more »

  • Kind of pricey for how large it is, many exhibits closed during winter. Exhibits are well laid out, but old and many are showing their age. Was very pleased to see two leopards and two tigers, and it seems that the zoo is very active in breeding programs and other conservation efforts. High school volunteers were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the rainforest house the most, and are looking forward to the completion of new exhibits currently under construction.
  • Went as a party venue, the event was terrific. Beautiful grounds, excellent catering, carousel room was lovely, patio and 'bandstand' area was nice - super fun to have the peacock wandering around!'
  • This is a great place to bring young kids, but I wouldn't come as an adult or a young couple looking to kill a Saturday. It's a somewhat small zoo that felt a bit disorganized. But again, I I'd recommend it for children under the age of 8 for sure.
  • nice SMALL zoo. worth about 45 minutes to an hour. not really worth the price. but fine for an hour.
  • This was a relaxing place for me on Sundays. The wolf exhibit was special and the staff are very friendly and informed. I took many photos in the greenhouses while in was raining.
