Love this little zoo as part of Hersheypark's admission. Not too large but a good visit to get away from the crowds at the park and to see the animals in their winter coats.

This is a small zoo that focuses on North American wildlife. It's great to visit with kids and they always have good educational experiences going on as well.

We went to this zoo through the entrance from Hershey park which was included in the park admission & we did not have to pay again to enter! It has a wide assortment of animals & they can be seen in their clean, natural habitats....More

The zoo is one of the better ones we have been to. It is a rescue zoo so you get to see some unique animals. It is a must see if you go to Hershey.

I love the layout of the zoo. It is a great adventure. We learned a lot about some of the different ones there. The Myna bird will repeat different things and we never knew that. It is a great place to see the eagles!

Going in the winter this wasn’t crowded at all so you could take your time and see all the animals. The outside animals loved the cold and were very active which made the visit very enjoyable.
