  • We took our 2-year-old grandson in the fall. We had not been here for many years and it was a surprise to see how well it has been redesigned. We loved the exhibits and having free peacocks all over!  more »
  • See a zoo in your own boro of Brooklyn.. Also can stroll thru Prospect Park and even the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens across the street. Several points of entertainment in the same area..  more »

  • This is a pretty small zoo that you can plan to enjoy for an hour or two. Kids love the petting zoo and the baboon mountain. The nice thing about the layout is that all the exhibits are pretty close to each other. Kids can see all of them. In a big zoo, it is impossible to get to see everything in one visit.
  • I've been coming here almost my whole life!! As a child, when it was still a "zoo" (thankfully, no longer), I came here with my boys when they were younger and I continue to visit now!! I LOVE IT!! So much fun and so interesting! Cool animals to see and fun trails to walk!! This is truly a place for CHILDREN OF ALL AGES!!
