“With its leisurely atmosphere and extensive natural environment, the Cape May County Park and Zoo is a one-of-a-kind zoo experience,” said Charisse Rudolph, customer service manager for the Cape May – Lewes Ferry. “It’s an awesome family adventure and it’s only a beautiful boat ride away!” Last year, Trip Advisor rated the Cape May County Park & Zoo the third best zoo in the country.
In addition to the many animals at the Zoo, the Park also has its very own Central Park Playground; kids of all ages can enjoy the large play area with swings, monkey bars, and obstacle courses. After a day exploring everything the Zoo has to offer, take a ride on the jungle themed carousel or the safari train!
