Forked River - Popcorn Park Zoo


About Us:

Popcorn Park Zoo was established in 1977 for the sole purpose of providing a refuge for wildlife that were sick, elderly, abandoned, abused, or injured, and which could no longer survive in its natural habitat. As time went on, we expanded to include exotic and domestic animals. All our residents once faced these circumstances, as well as exploitation and illegal ownership. Over 200 of these animals and birds now live in spacious surroundings in the heart of the scenic Pine Barrens (directions) in southern New Jersey. The Zoo, which is federally licensed, comprises seven acres and is graced by the indigenous Scrub Oak and Scrub Pine.

It is very good place for kids . We can feed animals popcorn and peanut and petting them . Kids who love animals will be super happy. There are horses, deer, peacock white and green, duck, ponies, lama , sheep and so many other animals were allowed to feed. Some animals were just to see . It's basically zoo where few animals were allowed to feed. Peacocks will be walking around freely. We can spend maximum of 2 to 3 hours here.

Good experience for the kids in this casual zoo environment. It's big enough that there is plenty of variety, but small enough that it doesn't overwhelm you. The animals are friendly and more than happy to come up to visitors for some popcorn (available at the front desk).

I have limited mobility and can’t walk in a big Zoo. Popcorn Park Zoo is the perfect size. I love feeding the animals, especially the goats, they enjoy eating as much as I enjoy giving the popcorn to them. It’s a great cause and a lot of Fun especially for animal lovers.

For a zoo that works so much on donations, the people there are pleasant and cheerful. They take in stays and injured animals of all walks of life and do the best to help them live as configurable as they can for the remainder of their days.
