can tell me why there is the 'land of regret?' or whatever? Filled with cement animals? What are we doing here? Terrifying toddlers with dead dodo birds?

We brought our 2 year old here because she loves animals. The staff was very friendly and took the time to tell us a little about each animal. Our daughter was very impressed with all the animals. She loved how close we could get and the variety. Having a small child we were grateful for how compact everything was. Our... More

The prices were discounted for the season which was a great deal. The gravel paths were a bit muddy so appropriate footwear should be considered. I am convinced the Lions wanted to be cuddled. We were able to get so close and the lion was rubbing his face against the fence like he wanted to be petted. We saw the... More

We went to the zoo today and I was very impressed with attention with which the animals receive. I was harken it to more of a sanctuary that a "big city zoo" and thank God for that! The animals are well taken care of and seem to be well adapted to their environment. We would all love not to have... More

Small zoo, few animals and hazardous trails. The smell of manure is very strong. I've visited all the other maritime zoo's and have never notice an odor. Wouldn't recommend.

It was a cute little zoo, but I do mean little. Some of the animals didn't look too good, but it is a zoo. I would recommend visiting if you ever find yourself in saint john. It's a fun day activity to do.

Stopped in at the cherry brook zoo this past summer. Great and friendly staff! I wish the zoo was bigger compared to Moncton's zoo. Overall its a clean place and have mini golf to play before you leave.

The zoo is great and it has a very small collection of animals. The zoo has always been known to struggle financially, and was recently discovered to have been defrauded by the 'volunteers' who are supposed to be taking care of these poor animals. I hope the investigation leads to these animals being sent to a better facility where their... More

This course is very run down and poorly designed. My son was very upset after playing here and my husband commented that he couldn't imagine any child not being totally frustrated with the conditions.
