We had a blast. Loved the animals, staff were friendly, nice pond view for lunch. Looking forward to future trips for hiking, letterboxing, and enjoying the playground.

Fun & Educational - Have made the 30 minute drive several times in the past year, with kids, well worth it. The outdoor animal enclosures and indoor exotic animal exhibit are usually our first stops. The excellent wooden playground with slides of various sizes is usually how we end the visit. The hiking trails are fun too, time permitting.

Very nice place for kids. They give a feel of a country farm. They have various domestic animals. they also have a small snake home(very small) with few of the snakes. The stretch where it takes you to a hill top kinda of structure is really cool. It looks scary.. but its constructed so well with proper bridges and barricades. Living in Stamford, this is a must visit. IF you travel in Bus, they don't charge you the ticket fee
