We have visited York's Wild Kingdom a couple of times now and each time I am impressed with the cleanliness, organization and activity within the zoo. The pigmy goats won our daughter's heart, but there is a large selection of animals to see as well.

This was a pleasant surprise we loved all the different animals. Parking is free if you park in the back lot off of Route 1. Is a little pricey if you have a bigger family but worth going to see.

The zoo itself is the best part for where it is located. It's not the D.C. Zoo by any means. Smaller children may enjoy it. It's a small zoo and the price is reasonable. I would skip the ride part. Run down- feels like an...More

It all depends on the weather believe it or not. At this point, they are open until the end of September, they have a calender on their website so you can check as you get closer.
