Cape May County Zoo Rated Selected as Number Three in the Country by Trip Adviser.

COURT HOUSE – Cape May County Freeholder Vice-Director M. Susan Sheppard is proud to announce that The Cape May County Zoo has been selected as the #3 zoo in the country by Trip Advisor. Freeholder Sheppard said, “Trip Advisor has announced the top 10 zoos in America and our zoo is number three on the list! I am so proud of all of our employees who work so hard to make our zoo the outstanding treasure that it is!”

The Cape May County Park and Zoo received the honors, thanks to Trip Advisor’s Popularity Index. The Henry Doorly Zoo in Nebraska was number one, followed by the St. Louis Zoo in second place.

TripAdvisor stated, “The Cape May County Zoo situated on the southern Jersey Shore, is a wildlife sanctuary showcasing more than 250 species of animals and over 500 animals. Travelers can acquaint themselves with a bevy of birds, amphibians, reptiles, and furry friends – and, when not gawking at quadrupeds, can wander through one of the lush nature trails, or hop on the train and carousel rides. A TripAdvisor traveler noted, “If you and your family like to see animals treated in a fair and humane way and enjoy a wonderful park setting, the Cape May County Park and Zoo is the place to go.”

Freeholder Sheppard added, “The Freeholders are committed to preserving and improving our free zoo so it remains a popular destination for both our residents and visitors.”

The Cape May County Park and Zoo is located at 707 Route 9 North in Cape May Court House (Exit 11 off of the Garden State Parkway). The free Zoo is open, weather permitting, 364 days a year – closed on Christmas Day. Currently, the zoo is open from 10 a.m. until 4:45 p.m.
