The playground/ splash pad is perfect for a "heat advisory" in NJ! My 3 year old had a blast. the zoo is small enough that he will walk the whole thing himself.

Enjoy watching the many animals, train ride, carousel, playground, and pony rides. I've had great times with my kids here and Bergen County residents benefit from a discount

A very well organized zoo. Visitors can get close to the beasts and learn a great deal about them. They live in fanciful dwellings and all look like a happy lot. The staff is generally friendly and informative. Only issue is that there is no ice cream truck nearby.

Maybe it was because of the heat of summer, but many of the animals were not seen because they were napping somewhere. However, the plaques were informative and the pens nicely spaced out. A pretty good variety of animals for a small zoo. A booth where one could purchase refreshments would have been a nice addition- drinks at least, if not something suitable for lunch.
