We love this zoo! We visit frequently in the warm months and always for Christmas in Cape May weekend. It was kind of a bummer that most of the zoo was closed to visitors today because of the weather, but understandable as well. However, we were fortunate enough to see mama snow leopard with one of her babies playing hide and seek. So, so, so neat!!! We also visited Santa, looked for reindeer ;), and saw whatever animals we could. PS - Great job on the new monkey enclosure!

I've always loved that this is a small enough zoo to get through in a short amount of time. It's a great place to walk and look at things and it's also by donation so there's no exorbitant cost. We had our company picnic here this year so it was the first time I was out by the pavilions and it was really lovely. It was a nice roomy setup with lots of playgrounds and trails around. The whole park is a good way to spend a day.

How can you not love this place? And most of it is free! They always have great events for the kids and this is a perfect location for anyone wanting to be outdoors. Romantic picnic by the gazebo, quiet nature walk around the park, or a little more upbeat walk through the zoo, playgrounds for all kids and pavilions for those outside summer parties. For the more athletic type....frisbee golf? Or the new zip line park (not free, admission based). Hours upon hours, year after year is spent here.

It was Friday and the people were arriving for Labor Day. The zoo is really fabulous they do not charge admission but have concessions all around and restrooms. Every age was represented. It was a fun time for us just my grown daughter and myself a memory created. The people were pleasant and the grounds were clean no littering that I could see. The animals were sweet and fun. Perfect weather 74 and overcast.Rocky the tiger of 18 years had passed away the day before but after several operations he is happier now I'm sure. The leopard Cubs were great. Thanks Cape May Zoo. We gave a donation of 20.00 for the two of us and it was worth it!

This beautifully kept park and zoo is quite a gem. They have an amazing aviary, and animals from all over the world. The animals are in enclosures that are not cages and are easy to see. There are many benches throughout the zoo to relax on. If you are in the area I would recommend going to this free zoo. They do ask for a donation.
