KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
Admission: Admission to the park and zoo is FREE! However, the zoo would not exist if not for the generosity of their visitors and the work of their non-profit funding arm, the Cohanzick Zoological Society. All donations to the Cohanzick Zoological Society are used to purchase medications, veterinary care & equipment, specialty feeds, and enrichment items for the animals and also provides funding for all of their renovations and new habitats.
Hours: The zoo is open daily 9am – 4pm during the fall/winter season and 9am – 5pm during the spring/summer season. They are are closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Occasionally, they close during inclement weather.
Food: Currently, there are no food concessions available in the zoo, but they have a nice picnic grove overlooking the scenic raceway that runs through the park. Feel free to pack a lunch or bring in take-out.
The park and zoo is located in the heart of Bridgeton and is just minutes off Route 55. It’s a leisurely 40-45 minute drive south from the Philadelphia metropolitan area and 45-50 minutes northwest from the Atlantic City area.
