This is a very well runned county park. They have some rescued animals, seasonal butterfly house, fox, hawks, deer, eagle, & vultures. They also have a hut which has a pond of local fish. It's located right on the Schuylkill River which makes for great hikes.

I saw a donkey with what looked like a massive tumor growing from his/her neck, and a guy throwing white bread pieces over the fence to turkeys. I guess that's how they are being fed?! The rabbits in small cages looked miserable and sort of delirious. One wolf ran back and forth in his/her cage, bored out of their mind,... More

My grandsons, ages 5 & 2, love going here to see the animals. We go every time they are in town! I also took my sister here with her grandsons and they loved it too! The staff is friendly and knowledgable and it gives the kids a close up and personal look at many different animals! A nice, relaxing place... More

The event was quite a bit of fun. They have a number of animals and birds, which range from common farm animals to wolves, deer, hawks,... More

Been there many times. Animals are well cared for and the 2 wolves are cool. It's your tax money so, visit and enjoy. It's Free.

We love this little place. Our son loves animals and asks to go here often. It is a very low key free activity where he can observe many different animals. Addtionally, he enjoys watching the boats on the river and running free in the open grace. There is a picnic area down by the river and a boat launch. While... More

This is by far one of the best Parks / Wildlife Centers I have ever visited. The Park is located on Route 113, not far from where I currently reside. The grounds are immaculate. The Staff and Rangers are very helpful and knowledgeable. Each Species has a perfect habitat and are extremely well cared for by a devoted Staff. My... More
