Why locals love it

This small, 6.5 acre zoo is located in NYC's famous Central Park, making it easily reachable for those locals who don't want to make the trek to the bigger Bronx Zoo. Renovated in the 1980's, new buildings masked by vines house three exhibit areas: tropic, temperate, and polar.

Why you should visit it

This zoo is guaranteed fun for all ages! Be sure to pay a visit to the penguins (a visitor favorite), and to the children's zoo to hang out with goats, llamas, alpacas, and more. They also have a 4-D movie theater that promises a multi-sensory experience.

Special tip

Check their schedule for special exhibits, animal feeding times, and demonstrations.
