As zoo's go Prospect Park zoo is "average." Parking can be a problem, but if you just want to get out for an afternoon it won't wear you out and the children will have a nice time.

The visit with my two grand children was enjoyable to me and children, they enjoyed seeing various types of animals and birds, they particularly enjoyed seeing monkeys, snakes, goats and different types of bird spices.

It's a small zoo inside prospect park with good but limited number of species. It will be fun for kids.

This is a great zoo for young children. However, it is not one of the best zoos in the country. Enjoy it, but you don't need to make a special trip.

Easy access around this smallish zoo with many of the animals on display inside buildings making it perfect on a hot summer day and allowing our grandson to wander without worrying he'd get lost...the exhibits were easy for him to see and enjoy.

Its a small zoo, you can be done with the whole zoo in less then 2 hours. Its great for smaller kids, who get tired easily. They have sheep that you can feed. You need to bring quarters to buy food.
