Great place to spend a few hours watching seals, bears, penguins, and leopards. Even at midday on a nice weekend, the park wasn't unbearably crowded.

There's not a lot to see at the zoo, though we did enjoy going round, but our overwhelming feeling was that a lot of the habitats were far too small for the animals. A rude employee in the gift shop didn't help either.

I’d always wanted to visit this zoo since watching Madagascar years ago! There was a large variety of animals to see that were well cared for. We had a brilliant afternoon and thought the entrance fee also offered great value!

This is a small zoo in Central Park ideal for trips with children. Allow a couple of hours including refreshments. No large animal except a couple of grizzly bears. Relatively cheap for a NY activity. Enjoyed it.
