If you’re in Bergen County next Saturday, come to the Bergen County Zoo and enjoy a special day there – it’s the zoo’s 50th anniversary. To celebrate, the zoo is offering free admission to all Bergen County residents from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturday August 14th. Non residents will have a small fee.
With over 500 animals, a train, carousel, and pony rides, the zoo is a favorite spot for families. Over 250,000 people visit the zoo annually and there are educational programs and activities all throughout the year for adults as well as children.
During the summer the zoo has 3 live animal shows daily in the amphitheater and a unique exhibit called the Budgie Encounter. Summer months also host Zoo Camp for children from 5 to 15. Zoo Camp is a popular one week program that is always sold out.
Located at the north end of Van Saun Park, the zoo is bordered by Paramus and River Edge. However, people from every town in Bergen County come to the zoo so it doesn’t matter if you live in Tenafly, Dumont, Cresskill or River Vale – no matter where you are here, the zoo is a “must go” location and, if you can’t go to the zoo, the Bergen County Zoo will come to you. The zoo has special programs for schools, organizations and senior living facilities too. You can even book a birthday party at the zoo!
So come join us on the 14th and help celebrate the Bergen County Zoo as it turns half a century old.
