I’ve been going here for years, even before kids. It’s a small zoo, so it’s easy to just go and kill a few hours. I recommend purchasing popcorn (for feeding most animals) and peanuts (for the bears). Don’t expect it to be as large as...More

We love animals and some of the zoos that we've visited left us less than happy at the way the animals live. Prior to visiting here, our favorite was the Cape May Zoo (that's still a great place), but this gem about an hour from...More

We went for a field trip and to be honest I'd recommend to go to cape may zoo. Its free and better than this place. I really didn't enjoy my time here. It's still alright.

We went In December and it was a little chilly but a good Time was had by all. My Grandkids loved it! Never expected to see a snow leopard , tigers and lions but they are there. Also there is a pet adoption center there..

A little ways off the Garden State Parkway (Exit 74), this is an open air zoo. Not too large but plenty of fun for families. Our Granddaughter especially enjoyed feeding popcorn (get it? Popcorn Zoo!) to the animals. Just a note...make sure you make good...More

My kids loved this place. Especially when they were younger. It's nice to walk around and give attention to the animals who are just looking for love.

Didn't expect much but, had a great time. Bigger than I expected and lots of animals. I wish I had my grandsons with me. Can't wait to take them. I strongly recommend this zoo.

I don't know where you live but the Monmouth County SPCA in Eatontown is a great facility that will take your dog and hopefully find him a new home. The Associated Humane Society, one of their locations is at POpcorn Park... More
