Such a joy to have a zoo in Saint John. The staff at cherry brook zoo are so beyond great and really do such an amazing job at the zoo.

Small zoo, few animals and hazardous trails. The smell of manure is very strong. I've visited all the other maritime zoo's and have never notice an odor. Wouldn't recommend.

Stopped in at the cherry brook zoo this past summer. Great and friendly staff! I wish the zoo was bigger compared to Moncton's zoo. Overall its a clean place and have mini golf to play before you leave.

The zoo is great and it has a very small collection of animals. The zoo has always been known to struggle financially, and was recently discovered to have been defrauded by the 'volunteers' who are supposed to be taking care of these poor animals. I hope the investigation leads to these animals being sent to a better facility where their... More

This course is very run down and poorly designed. My son was very upset after playing here and my husband commented that he couldn't imagine any child not being totally frustrated with the conditions.

This zoo has certainly seen better days... but it is not expensive, and was still a good way to spend our afternoon. The lion is still shown on their map, but when we reached that area... we saw a sign telling us she passed away in 2014 and they were going to take this time to refurbish the lion enclosure... More

A lot disappointed with the experience. Didn't receive the maritime hospitality that I have come to know and love. The zoo lacks variety in animals. There is an animal graveyard of extinct animals, but not even a picture to show people what the animals were. Wouldn't recommend to other travelers. Boo to Cherry Brook Zoo.

Finding this place was a challenge, as it is not accessible in the park by car. I would have never found it without GPS. It is a really small zoo with a few random animals - there is no logic to the placement. The paths are not well marked and the enclosures do not look well kept. Animals look sad.... More

Wasn't expensive, like that it's in the woods made it feel a little more natural. Spent a good 2 hours but really took our time. Good for young children.
