About the event

The Cohanzick Zoo opened its gates as New Jersey’s first zoo in 1934.  Home to nearly 100 animals representing more than 45 different species  from around the world, the zoo has been a regional destination  attraction for generations. We are a small free zoo, situated on  approximately 15 acres within the city of Bridgeton’s 1100-acre park,  but we provide a home for some larger-than-life animals including  Holly, our Asiatic black bear! We’ve been described by many as a hidden  gem nestled in the woods, well off the beaten path.
