Have been there quite a few times. The only reason I gave them an average rating is the grounds where the animals are kept could have the tall grass cut back. Sometimes it is hard to see them.

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?

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...More

Such a joy to have a zoo in Saint John. The staff at cherry brook zoo are so beyond great and really do such an amazing job at the zoo.

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...More

The zoo has a wheel chair ramp that goes down and into the zoo, but the zoo's trails are very rough in spots with steep hills and some tree roots on the paths.
