A wonderful variety of animals. Well kept grounds and animals looked very cared for. Many different animals to view. We loved the prairie dogs as they were very active and were very vocal. A fun day for any age.

We always visit Hershey each Summer. We enjoy our trip to the Zoo each time. It is small enough for the children to manage and very well organized.
