Great place to see all types of animals in their natural environments. Great job by the zoo! Cost is nominal and helps the animals too!

We took our grandson here and while the zoo itself is small it had some really great exhibits. The experience could be greatly enhanced if the zoo would have staff do talks and education periodically throughout the day.

We brought our grandkids to NYC for their first visit. This was a great day. Starting with the ferry ride. The enclosures are nice and the nice mix of animals is engaging. Lots of shaded areas. And a great play/picnic area.
