The Allentown Fish hatchery was easy to find and had plenty of parking. The grounds are very pretty. Nice place to walk around for 10 minutes or 30 minutes or longer. Food is sold in different size bags. It was a lot of fun to see all the different types of trout and to watch them come for the food.... More

The Allentown fish hatchery has been here as long as I have lived in the valley. Over the last 20 years I have spent afternoons especially in summer visiting the fish hatchery and enjoying all the different pools of growing fish. It is fun to feed them and to experience walking around seeing their growth. It sounds kind of strange... More

This place is a local favorite! I took my kids there and whenever we have young visitors we go! The kids get a kick out of the huge fish and how they flip around and splash tryng to get the pellets.

We visited the Allentown Fish Hatchery a long time ago with my brother, his wife and his six children. Everyone had a lot of fun there. Who thought fish could be fun?

I have visited the Fish Hatchery multiple times with my grandkids. They always enjoyed it. I'd say it's for the ten and under crowd.

it was very clean and nice. We pack a lunch and sit at the picnic tables they have to eat and then feed the fish. We come here a couple times a year. Total wheel chair accessible!

I took my granddaughters there and they enjoyed seeing all the fish. It is free of charge and free parking. There is a large board that displays all the different kinds of fish that is in the hatchery. We had a good time pointing out the various types we saw from the board. We spent about 90 minutes leisurely walking... More

Love bringing the kids to feed the fish and just walk around, no cost to enter and the fish food is inexpensive. Great summer activity for kids and adults and all those on a budget.
