What a lovely place for children and adults to visit! We took our two young granddaughters here last weekend and they loved it. They got to see all sorts of animals and even got to feed a bear. It's set in a beautiful wooded area and lovely to walk through. They give you a great map and the girls loved... More

It is a nice place to visit but there isn't a lot to do, making the trip short. All together we had a good time there.

This place is excellent for all walks of life. We come here at least 2-3 times a year. It's a great little outdoor adventure for the whole family. Bring a Picnic sit under the shade of the trees. Bring Quarters to feed the Fish which is the best part for the kiddies. I wouldn't say their are a ton of... More

The Maine wildlife Park is a wonderful place to pack a picnic lunch and go spend the day. The park has tried and succeeded to make the animals habitations as true to the real thing. All the animals here are animals that are being rehabilitated or cannot survive in the wild. Great learning experience for young and old alike. They... More

My kids and family In general were really looking forward to visiting the wildlife park when we visited Maine this weekend. We went on the website for the park and it said that it was open. We drove over an hour to get there, only to find that it was closed for the season. Attractions such as these need to... More

Loved going here when I was younger, and took my daughter here for her first time this summer. At a year and a half old she had a ball. She enjoyed the turtles, and much more. A fun family day together.

Nice small wildlife park. Most exhibits are nicely done and good for the animals. I spent 30 years in the Zoo business so know what i am talking about the one overriding negative is they allow feeding of the bears which is bad to them as a species and bad to teach us humans. Just ask anyone ion Florida. It... More

We are into wildlife so we had to go to this place. It is primarily a site for animals that have been rescued. I don't often get to see Moose, so that was the primary attraction for me, but they had a variety of local wildlife including foxes, deer, raccoons, mountain lions, foxes, etc. The fish hatchery is also part...
