Come and walk amidst a land of enchantment- as you stroll through the park you will be greeted by animals of all nations. You'll feed them by hand, and they'll follow you through the park. Pet these animals from Europe, Asia, South and North America, and Africa. You won't want to miss our NEWEST additions- over 75 new babies born each year! Take a break from the lake. Fish with us in our calm, cool, shaded lagoons. Fish brought in regularly, including catfish, bullheads, and carp. Also, largemouth bass, crappies, rock bass, and bluegill propagated on property.

If you have animal lovers, it is well worth the trip to the Deer Park! If you can, splurge on the bucket of feed ($25). It goes a long way.

The park was clean and the staff was friendly. The drive thru was a blast for all of us. Young kids all the way up to grandparents will enjoy this. Probably the best time to go thru is early in the morning when they open. Animals get hot and full as the day wears on. Buy extra carrots. The giraffes... More

This was our second time at Lagoon Deer Park. The staff was very nice. We don't mind the cost of admission and the cost for feed because the place is a little worn in places. But the kids again had a great time having the deer and the alpaca follow them around, trying to nab the bags of corn and... More

You are able to feed many animals, they come right up to you and be careful they will eat at your rings, earrings, ect. They are so friendly, had a blast feeding them peanuts. We needed to spend more time but we did not have it. Will be back again before the year is over.

In this park, there is a big open area where you walk around and feed all kinds of deer, peacocks, etc. Probably 20K square feet but no promises. Then around the park are large pens with other exotic species you can feed. The animals follow you around, and you can pet them as you feed them. For children, this is... More

It's been around for decades. Remember going there long ago. This place is great to take your kids, or for class trip type excursions.

I took my grandchildren to this park 3-4 years ago since it is right up the street from me, and it was NOT worth the $$ charged to get in. I would never go back . The advertisements are everywhere you enter Erie County but it is not worth the money.
