There is only a short time in May and June when you can visit this garden in full bloom, and it’s definitely worth it! I will be back to see it again next year.

Our Visit To Turtle Back Zoo Essex County DestinationsTurtle Back Zoo

A few times a year.

West Orange NJ

This is a great zoo! It is not too big, so you could cover it in one day visit and not get too exhausted.  It has a nice variety of animals, lots of interactive activities, a great playground, food court, classes and so much more!
