This place lets men assault the wives of disabled veterans, get hit by strange men, then they will kick you out for it. We were there for an event and I couldn't stop on the hill because of my wheelchair. As I was rolling down the hill at the entrance unable to stop, I had to yell to get the attention of a woman who was in my way. Her husband gets offended and begins talk badly about my wife and I to my 5yr old son. My wife yelled at him and then he began to stick his hands in her face. as expected she swatted it away and then he pushed her. She pushed him away from her, because she was scared by the man assaulting her (three MEN were holding him back at this point). The manager wasn't interested in her side of the story and I was helplessly stranded at the bottom of the hill. We were then ejected from the zoo while the man that assaulted my wife was allowed to stay and enjoy the event with his family. BOTTOM LINE:LEHIGH VALLEY ZOO HATES DISABLED VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND APPEARS TO SUPPORT SHARIA LAW (i.e. The woman is worthless and any man is worth believing) I asked to speak to the manager and was flatly told "no" Not to mention it's so far out of the way and a pain to drive to, you're better off finding something else to do, or drive to Philadelphia to see a real zoo.

Family goes here all the time. I really like the park. Many animals to look at, and certain places pet. Well kept and clean environment, with many native animals. Excellent place for the kids. If you like hiking the paths through the nature preserve are great.

It is a great zoo, it is very clean, with big enclosures, prices are reasonable, and there is a lot of different animals, and some, you can even go inside the enclosure to see!! It was a lot of fun

A nightmare to get to, especially if you are a tourist unfamiliar with the area. But, once you arrive, the zoo is a very pleasant experience. Though it is a small zoo, it does have some interesting animals and it is well laid out. The animals appear to be well taken care of.

Pros: The drive in is beautiful. Depending on the road you take in, you actually drive through a covered bridge. Then you drive through the game preserve and see stunning views of the valley below. We have even pulled over and stopped on the way in and just sat and looked at a field full of butterflies. The zoo itself is adorable (in my opinion). It is one single loop which takes about an hour to walk through, with time for stops at all the animals--a little faster or slower depending on your pace. I love that because of it's size, you can get up really close to the animals. I've been taking my daughter pretty regularly since we moved here two years ago, and I love the simplicity of it. There are penguins, a macaw, otters, a variety of barnyard animals--many that you can pet or feed, lorikeets--also with an option to feed them, camels, emus, kangaroos, ducks, swans, wolves, owls, prairie dogs, and more. It's really great for animal photography. When my daughter was young enough to sit in the stroller, I'd take my camera, and actually have a few minutes to compose a shot! Now I mostly chase her around with the camera! There is a playground, so when we are done looking at animals, she can run around some more before we head home. There is also a small cafe to grab a snack. The drive out is so cool! You drive right through a ford in the Jordan Creek. After you pass through, there is a spot for picnics and a nature trail. Cons: There is little in the way of signs on the way in or out to give you confidence that yes, you are going the right way. For someone not used to driving through wooden covered bridges or through the ford in the creek, I was a bit concerned the first time through! The price has increased slightly. The best value if you live locally (within a half an hour drive) is a family membership. Yes, there have been times when we have gone, and some of the animals are hiding or sleeping. But the more you go, the more you get out of the experience.
