The zoo is divided into two parts, a small zoo and a petting farm. We always have lots of fun feeding the animals at the petting zoo. We also enjoy the beautiful aviary dome which you should definitely visit! There’s a small playground as well.

This is a great zoo to visit on a low key day in Queens. Not as big as the Bronx Zoo but is just fine. Plenty of animals and exhibits to see.

Relatively small zoo, however has a great variety of animals. Some of them you won't find in any other of NYC zoos. Little kids love watching birds and sea lions. There is also a petting area. Just be prepared that your kids will ask you...More
