It's a nice little small town zoo. My Grandchildren live in Dallas, so they were not too impressed. Same animals since I was a child (just different generations probably). They really should add some new things.

The children enjoy the monkeys the most. Food was a little costly but had good kids meals that they enjoyed. They had a great time.

This is a must when visiting or passing through Salisbury. The Zoo(which is free) is amazing, clean and kid friendly. The play area (Ben’s Park) is also a great place to visit after the zoo.

It has a nice array of animals. Not too big where you are there all day. Nice for little kids. It was also fun for teenagers just going to look at animals.

You are not allowed to fish within the zoo area, however branch river that runs through the zoo flows west back into the Wicomico River. It passes through the Salisbury City Park and you can fish there. It's not a great... More
