Hours of Operation

The zoo is open daily 9am – 4pm during the fall/winter season and 9am – 5pm during the spring/summer season.

We are closed Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

Occasionally, we may close during inclement weather. Please check our Facebook page for weather closures.

Getting Here

The zoo can be found in Bridgeton City Park 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.

Pack a lunch or find a local restaurant/deli!

Currently, there are no food concessions available in the zoo, but we do have a lovely picnic grove overlooking the scenic raceway that runs through the park. If you’re stopping down on the fly and forgot your lunch, no worries! Check out Trip Advisor (click here) for the best restaurants and delis in the area.

FREE! We are a free zoo, but we absolutely, positively would not exist if not for the generosity of visitors like you and the work of our non-profit funding arm, the Cohanzick Zoological Society. Every single penny donated to the Cohanzick Zoological Society purchases medications, veterinary care & equipment, specialty feeds, and enrichment items for the animals and provides funding for ALL of our renovations and new habitats. Most recently, the society provided the funding to construct a new habitat for our wallabies! Your donation makes a difference! Please consider donating today! (Click here to make a donation!)
