Maine Wildlife Park

56 Game Farm Road

Many of the animals at the Maine Wildlife Park were brought here because they were injured or orphaned, or because they were human dependent - raised, sometimes illegally, in captivity. The Park serves as a permanent home for wildlife that cannot survive in the Wild. All kinds of animals are here for their protection and healing. And they're here for you to enjoy and learn more about.

This is a fantastic place to go, alone or with family and/or friends. The pricing isn't bad, especially if you are local enough to justify the season pass. They feature many of Maine's native species and are working hard to make the experience better for visitors AND wildlife. One example is creating more realistic habitats for the animals. For instance, the lynx now have quite a bit of legroom and places to lay or hide, where previously they were in very small caged areas (relatively). Most Saturdays throughout the season they have special events. They're very good about posting this information on their website, details of events. There are multiple educationsl exhibits outside of the wildlife, too, including a little garden. The nocturnal creature display, albeit very small, is a great addition. Parking is free, and there is plenty of space to walk around or have a picnic. It is moderately sized. I don't think it's more than a mile or so of walking if you see everything. Take time to visit the gift and snack shops and the fish hatchery, accessible through the gate past the turtles.

Great place to take kids to learn about Maine natural resources. It's not just about animals. The park has multiple exhibits centered around trees and plant life. From aquatic life (fish and turtles) to large land mammals like moose, the park has it all. Trails are well maintained and most are easy to traverse with a stroller. Great place to spend the day and very affordable. Kids 3 and under free.

Very nice park, all the animal areas seemed very clean and well maintained. It was very hot the day we went so seeing they had hoses running and plenty of shade for the animals was very nice to see. Also the snack shack had 35 cent ice creams readily available for there guests which was nice. Would highly recommend this place for a family outing, with a picnic. They have charcoal grills available and wagons for the kids for a fee. Will definitely return again.

Wonderful wildlife park kept clean and beautifully landscaped. Nice collection of animals although many were sleeping/hiding on the hot day we went. Well worth the price, we'd go again. Talk the walk down to the fish hatchery and feed the fish in the pool at the end (bring quarters). It was fun!

What an amazing park! We had a wonderful time. Our 2yr old loved it. Park was very clean. All animals looked very well cared for. Lots of variety, staff was very helpful and provided great information. Price was crazy cheap. This was our first visit and we will be back for sure!
