Local, Hidden Gem!

Great place to take the little ones. It isn't a huge zoo, so you don't feel like you can't see everything in one day, or spend more time watching your favorites.

We love visiting this zoo, mostly because its FREE!! This is virtually unheard of. It's a great size especially for young children to be able to see everything in one trip. Very stroller friendly as well and the staff are very nice.

I live in Florida and every time I come home, to Salisbury, the very first thing I do is visit. It is a free zoo that is attached to the park, which is a great place to walk around. They have an herb garden that has bricks around it that you are able to purchase for a loved one or... More

For a free zoo this one isn't bad. We walked the whole thing within an hour. If you live in the area it's a cute little place to take the kids. They don't have a ton of animals but it was free. Our favorites were the otters and the wolf as they were the most active.

Who doesn't love a zoo that not only has a variety of nice birds and animals but is FREE? This zoo never disappoints and is a must-see for both adults and kids alike. They now have a young ocelot that they've acquired and I can't wait to see it!

A zoo, its free, and it was a fun place to visit. a lot of different animals, from flamingo's to alligators, to bison. Clean, easy to get around. If you have young children, and want a free place to go, make the trip here

I love that this zoo is in our back yard! It's free and I love walking around and visiting the animals! I haven't eaten here but the gift shop is small but offers a great choice and selection for little bit of money. I don't think it's overpriced compared to bigger zoos that charge. Definitely a must visit if you... More
