The Cohanzick Zoo opened its gates as New Jersey’s first zoo in 1934.

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.
