My kids love the ZOO and we try to visit often. Our little girl really loves every visit there and loves the playground with big fake snake. A really cool attraction right here in our neighborhood.

Although the zoo is small it is a nice day out for the kids, and even the adults. It is a nice place to visit and see the animals.

It’s a small zoo, compact and easily seen in a few hours. The exhibits are fun and the kids really enjoyed the carousel ride more than once. The parking lot is close by, so the walk is not very far. We’ve been there many times,...More

A small zoo that's easy to walk through. There is a lot to see and do. My grandchildren love the carousel ride. Getting to pet a snake was an exciting experience for them too. Staff pleasant and knowledgeable about the animals being showcased.

For a very small zoo, the smallest I've ever seen, they do a lot with the area they have. Good exhibits, well designed and very compact. I think the entrance fee is much but NYC has to get money from somewhere. Again, unlike many NYC...More

Wednesday is the most crowded. That day is free. Many day centers bring their young children to the zoo. Bus loads of happy children .Beautiful.Smiles and joy. But it fills the zoo. All other days are not very crowded.
