Lehigh Valley Zoo Reviews
Great Christmas display for the whole family to enjoy. Price was resonable and the attractions were delightful. A must see during the holidays. more »
We took our 3-1/2 year old granddaughter, who thoroughly enjoyed the day. I was a bit disappointed there were no lions, tigers, bears or monkeys. The day was still awesome. more »
It's a nice "starter" zoo for young children. You can walk through and see it all in less than 90 minutes. We like that the parking is free and always enjoy driving through the creek and seeing the bison on the way out. The giraffes were a nice addition to the zoo. The lines to feed them can be fairly long though. We visited twice this year and unfortunately the feeding was closed both times. We will be calling next time before we go.
My husband and I went in a hot summer morning a few weeks ago. I grew up here and so I know this is one of our hidden treasures. The staff loves to answer all questions you may have. I could spend the whole day watching the penguins! The two giraffes were amazing to see. The zoo is just the right size as you get to see a lot without getting bored. Great place to take the kids and great place for a cute and fun date! Bravo to the staff!
