LACEY TOWNSHIP, NJ – Ok, we know about the Cape May Zoo and Six Flags’ Wild Safari, but locals at the Jersey Shore have an undeniable favorite little zoo, the Popcorn Park Zoo and Animal Refuge. Why? Because the place is full of goodness. They take in any animal that needs a help and needs a home. For exotic animals, they take care of them and give them a home. For dogs, cats and other domestic animals, they care for them until they find their new fur-ever homes. Now, the zoo is reopening after being shut down by COVID-19.
“We are so very excited to welcome visitors back to Popcorn Park! Our animals have missed you and can’t wait to see you all! We will reopen on Friday June 26th for normal business hours (11 am – 5 pm, 7 days a week). Unfortunately, we won’t be able to have you feed our residents popcorn or peanuts just yet (reminder that no outside food is allowed in the Park),” Popcorn Park said. “We’ve increased the number of hand sanitizer stations throughout the zoo and ask that our visitors follow proper social distancing guidelines during their visit, this includes entering the ticket booth one family/group at a time. Masks are required inside the ticket booth and we recommend wearing them in the zoo as well to protect yourself, our animals, staff & volunteers. Please call 609-693-1900 with any questions. The adoption center will remain closed to the public at this time, continuing to use our adoption by appointment process. We’re looking forward to your visit!”
