Lehigh Valley Zoo hold amazing events across the year, so make sure you take the kids to some! They have trick-or-treating around the zoo, as well as live music, or they hold days to educate about those beautiful animals which are now endangered.

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...Read More

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

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.

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.

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.
