This little zoo has a good variety of animals for the size. There is a TON for kids too do, see animals, Feed animals, playground, giant sandbox, see horses. I just wish the animals had a little more room in thier enclosures and it was a little bit cleaner, especially the bathrooms.

it is a very small Animal Park. You almost can feed all animals there. They sell the food at the entrance.

We did not go in the zoo part, however, the horseback riding was a great experience. The horses were all fat, happy and well cared for. Had plently of hay, their feet were all trimmed or shoed nicely, the tack was nice, the guide was nice and friendly. They took us right out and let us ride what horses we... More

The Bailiwick petting zoo and pony rides were paid and advertised to be at the Hudson valley apple festival today. The workers said they never came.. very dissapointing

I don't recommend visiting here. I'm glad I had a Groupon otherwise I would have been more upset at the waste of money for full price. I don't get the impression that the animals are cared for as well as they could be. Many of them were missing fur or feathers. Others paced their cages. The looks they gave me... More

We got 50% off with a groupon. Thank god we didn't pay full price. The Tigers and Bears look well maintained and my daughter loved getting up close to the camels and Illamas. Significant updates need to be made to all elements of the park. The enclosures are very dated and I question their safety. There was only a chain... More

We had an amazing time! We have been coming here for years! Staff is wonderful, friendly and very helpful! There is a playground area! You can pack a lunch and eat at the picnic tables. This will always be part of our family tradition!!! There is a wide variety of animals! Prices are extremely reasonable! A+

My parents and I took my son there this past weekend and had a great time. The weather wasn't great, but we got off with only a couple quick showers. I have to say for a zoo/farm of it's size, it had a pretty good diversity of animals. There were your typical petting zoo animals, like goats and sheep, but... More

By all means, put this on your to do list when visiting Greene County. Went there again today with our 2 year old grandson. It was an amazing experience for him to pet and feed some of the animals and to see some of the more exotic animals like the beautiful tigers and bears. We spoke with Gary the owner... More

Small.... well kept.... animals look healthy.... BUT $16 p/p $2 6oz dry corn We feel a horse ride should have been included! Admission PRICE high for so little entertainment?
