I love visiting the Salisbury Zoo and do so on a regular basis. It is a quiet place to spend an hour strolling the shaded pathways and watching the animals. This is a free, small zoo. Full review by Carolyn H

You are not allowed to fish within the zoo area, however branch river that runs through the zoo flows west back into the Wicomico River. It passes through the Salisbury City Park and you can fish there. It's not a great fishing area, but it's okay for teaching kids the basics. North of Salisbury, up route 13, is Leonard's Mill Pond, which has better fishing areas... as well as Trap Pond State Park in Laurel, Delaware, which is a short drive away.
Q:

A:
I don't think so.
Q:
Are dogs on leashes allowed on the paths through the zoo.

Only service animals allowed
