Living Treasures is a great place for family. My son and I spent several hours feeding and interacting with the animals. They have a wide variety to observe, and their shows are very up close and personal. My son begs me to go back! The price is very inexpensive and affordable for a family on a budget. Thank You so much for a great time and we look forward to returning soon!

A video review of Living Treasures by Melissa Zack: https://youtu.be/8Yv66kmSjvo
Was pleasantly surprised at the setting and presentation of the animals and their habitats! It was easily accessible and children friendly! The layout of the grounds made it very easy to enjoy each in their natural surroundings! Roomy enough for strollers and wagons. This gramma and grandpa enjoyed as much as our toddler grandchildren.
I was amazed when I took my 3 grandboys last week Aug 15. Both the size of this place, the variety of wildlife, how very clean it was, and the the display of the outdoor cages and enclosures. Loads of parkingand easy walkways. Buy food for the animals and the kids can really enjoy up close visit. definitely a place to go.
Grandparents everywhere: This is a great place to take your grandkids. It is easy to walk around, not too large and no hills that make the kiddos tire easily and there is always something to see or feed around each corner. From carrots for the giraffes and goats to seeds for the birds. They can ride on a pony or a camel for a lot less than any fair. My granddaughter takes a bite from the carrot and gives the rest to the bunnies :). We have a special photo of her holding a baby kangaroo. Not too far away, not too costly, and not tiring for the kids or the adults: yep a winner in all categories.
Perfect size for young ones and you get to avoid the riff raff of a large zoo. Up close and personal views of the animals and a neat selection. Pens and animals were in excellent condition! Better than most zoos I have been to! The gift shop is a gem. The prices are so very affordable and there is a huge selection. A must see if you are i. the area!!
"This place is fantastic! It is a shorter drive than any zoo from the Youngstown area. The prices are very affordable, and there is no extra charge to park. All exhibits are close together, and the environment is kid-friendly. My family and I look to return many times.
Living Treasures is a great experience for the kid in all of us! You are able to see the animals at a more up close view without the crowds of hundreds of people walking in front of your stroller or blocking your view altogether. My grandchildren love interacting with the animals in the petting zoo area of the animal park best of all, or maybe it's the feeding of the giraffes with their "funny tongues", or riding the camel, or watching the monkeys play, or taking a picture holding a baby kangaroo. Well, I think they like it all plus more!! Yes, WE highly recommend Living Treasures Wild Animal Park to all!! Come out and enjoy!!
Great inexpensive day of fun for large or small families. Young children will love the animals and the hands on exhibits. Small park so walking or pushing stroller is no problem. If local get the season pass. This park is worth coming to multiple times.

Couldn't believe how much they've expanded in the few years since I was there. Easy to get to everything-just follow the trail. So much interaction with the animals-way better than the big zoos at Philly or Pittsb. You can feed most animals-by hand, tube into their cage, or with the monkeys-put food in a bucket and they pull the bucket to them. Bird aviary where you can feed the birds. Kangaroo path-got to pet a roo and he loved it! Didn't want to leave me! I was in heaven. Loved the tapir-I've been to many zoos and never saw one-adorable. The gibbons were characters. Baby leopard playing with its parents. So cute. Everything so clean and well kept. The animals looked well taken care of and didn't show any 'boredom displays' when I was there. A pleasure to walk through-we even drove 3 hrs to get there and I feel it was definitely worth it. 2 Giraffes you can feed at any time. Did miss interacting with the lemurs-wish they were closer but they're on an island. Hats off to the owners and staff!! Took us about 3 hours to walk through but of course, we really enjoyed feeding the animals and taking our time. And we were 4 adults! Gift shop has unique items too and I think fairly priced. Go in the fall-they're open 'til Nov. Not as busy and not as hot.
We had an absolutely amazing time! We take our two year old to the zoo quite frequently and he gets bored so easily because he can't run around. This was perfect because it allows you to be interactive with the animals and it's not overcrowded so it allows him to be able to roam, a little, without having to repeatedly tell him he has to stay with us (anyone with a toddler will understand). It was great and we can't wait to go again!
I've been to zoos in San Diego, San Francisco, and Pittsburgh. But this zoo offered the best zoo experience I ever had. I got to feed and touch a giraffe, zebra, buffalo, and a whole host of other animals. Excellent place to visit with the family.
"We just went today and loved it! We had 3 generations there... loved the baby giraffe , baby zebra, and baby camel... My 85-year-old mom even rode the camel! We made many lifetime memories.

"We have only been to the Moraine location — it is always enjoyable. The enclosures are very clean and the animals are healthy. The animals are very friendly and the kids have a great experience!
- Sheena Lentz
"Absolutely love it! Skip the zoos with distant glimpses of animals and go to Living Treasures where you can reach out and touch wildlife.
- Amelia Cornmesser Holloway
"Visited Living Treasures again today and had another wonderful experience! We were impressed by all the renovations from last year and the staff was so very kind. My 2-year-old got to pet a baby kangaroo one of your staff was holding. It made his day! Can't wait to go back!!
- Mindy Bowen
"This is a great animal park. It was clean and well laid out. The prices were very fair; from admissions to the feed, and animal encounter photos. Where else can you hold a kangaroo, ride a camel, pet a giraffe and zebra? We have been to many zoos and animal parks and this ranks as one of our favorites. I wish we lived closer; we would come all the time.
- Cari Beauregard

"We went for the first time with friends that go all the time. We enjoyed it more than the Pittsburgh Zoo... You can interact with sooo much! Little Taylor was our tour guide and showed us how to feed everybody! Can't wait to go again!
- Jennifer Hilbert
"Best animal park we've ever visited!
- Sharon Rose Prince
"Like nothing I've ever experienced before! The drive is TOTALLY worth it - plan to go back <3
- Melissa Drewett
"This is the best place to see exotic animals in a nice and family friendly place...feeding a giraffe or having birds land on your hand to eat...there is something for everyone.
- Matt Wagner
"I have two toddlers. It is infinitely easier to bring them here than the big Pittsburgh zoo. Plus, they like it better because they can touch the animals, & get up close. It's the right size for them. And it's much more affordable than the Pittsburgh Zoo. We love it. The only downside is it's not open all year round!
- Claire Cass
"Nice interactive zoo! Animals well cared for.
- Jennifer Kurn Capellman
"My 8-year-old son said "mommy, can we live here?" We had an amazing visit. We love Levi and ALL of the animals!!
- Diana Dragojevich Volpone
"Very affordable, extremely child friendly, all the animals were visible and close. Very impressed and much better than the Pittsburgh Zoo! My family had such a good time — We will be returning soon!
- Lisa Crissman Murawski
"I have been taking my kids to LT for the past several years. We all love it! We ride the camel, take pictures with the kangaroo and wallaby. We have season passes and it is well worth it! The gift shop is also awesome.
- Christine Pajewski
"I love this place! The animals, staff and the park itself is A+. I am buying a season pass for next year. I like this place better than the Pittsburgh Zoo. Go and you will have a wonderful time!"
"This place is incredible and so are the staff! I have been going to LT for the last 3 years, multiple times a year! The membership is WELL worth it! I'm hoping to have my baby sisters birthday party there...and to give you an idea, my baby sister will be 20 soon...lol so it's great for adults and children! We rode the camel, pony and my niece took a picture with a snake! There's no excuse not to go!"
We HIGHLY recommend this park!!! It's genius to let the guest's feed the animals and some in a creative way, like with monkeys and a bucket.......too cute! We thoroughly enjoyed every step we took through your park. Our favorites were feeding the giraffe, holding a kangaroo and the aviary. Your prices in the gift shop are very reasonable and after seeing how well the animals are kept it was a pleasure to spend more money in there to help out the zoo. My kids now have some souvenirs to always remind them of their special day at Living Treasures. I bought a t-shirt and will proudly wear it too! Thank you and keep up the good work. We will definitely be back!
Took our granddaughters here yesterday...first time here...really enjoyed it! Our 3 year old really loved it...a smile on her face all day & the 10 month old never went to sleep...too much to see We were impressed as to how clean it was & everyone was very friendly! Thank you...we will be back.

Love it! We go every year to visit our goat 'friends'. The animals look well taken care of with appropriate spaces. I love the hand sanitizers stationed around the park, too. There are some other animal parks that I cannot recommend to friends, because I feel the animals are not properly cared for. I recommend Living Treasures to everyone!!
Great place for the kids and adults! Perfectly safe for toddlers, very clean, kid friendly. We had so much fun and a took a bunch of photos of the kids with the animals. The birds come right onto you arms to feed them, all the animals are right there to feed, even the giraffes. Super cool.
We visited the New Castle location this weekend and were very impressed since the last time we visited (about 8 or 10 years ago). This place has beautifully transformed! The sloths were very interactive & the tamanduas were an awesome surprise! Nice to see so many baby animals too!
My son is 2 years old and absolutely loved visited living treasures! We will definitely be back soon, also I work in veterinary field and I was very pleased at the care and cleanliness of the animals! We had a great time! Thank you!
