It has been a tourist attraction for years and a sanctuary to many animals here in Ocean County. The Popcorn Park Zoo  in Forked River opened 43 years ago in 1977. The Zoo famous for it's "popcorn" that visitors can feed to various animals.

Over the years Sue and I have visited the zoo and enjoyed the staff and the work they do throughout the Ocean County community.
