  • The park is nice along the water, plenty of tables and grills. The zoo does not have a tiger. :( So disappointed! The zoo is suited for children under 6. It would make for a nice family day.
  • We normally come to the area to picnic across from the zoo along the Brandywine river. The geese and ducks are pretty socialized and it is nice and scenic. As for the zoo, it's very small with a limited amount of animals. I'm ok with that because it'd be sad to see a big animal all cramped up. they do have educational events, and the staff are well informed. We went today on a Groupon deal $12 for 2 adults, 2 children, which is about half off normal prices.
  • Awesome Zoo to take my grandsons aged 5 and 2.. quaint, very nice array of animals and friendly staff
  • My granddaughter had a great time there so did we nice and clean and coworkers were very nice and very education9
  • The price and size make this a great option for a quick afternoon dose of cute animals. I always spend most of my time petting the goats and watching the otters play. On my first trip, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a diverse selection of animals in a small zoo.
