What to do in Cape May

Cape May County Zoo


Cape May County is fortunate to have a free county park and zoo located just a few miles up the Garden State Parkway at exit 11.

The zoo features over 550 critters representing more than 250 different species. In May 2010, the birth of two Snow Leopard cubs put the zoo on the map. In April 2012, the zoo saw its third consecutive year of Snow Leopard births.
