The park is known for being particularly tidy and organized. Picnic areas, bike paths, a disk-golf court, and even fishing ponds are available. Just remember, you cannot bring food into the zoo.

  • It's one of the best zoos in the country. The place is clean and the animals are well cared for. They do not charge for admission so it's voluntary what you pay for.

  • The Cape May County Park is great ! Had nothing to do one day... I was trying to think of something where I haven't been lately...Bingo !!! Cape May County Park Zoo came to mind...weather was perfect..not too much traffic. All the animals were awake...they didn't feed lunch yet... I was thrilled to see all awake. I loved it...very clean...benches all over... But most of all...I loved all the Animals. Excellent & fun day.
