  • One of the best place you can bring the little ones! The staffs are all great and both my kids love this place. You can visit the animals anytime (as long as they aren’t cleaning them, they are open)....  more »
  • Wonderful place to play sports and just walk or bike along the paths. Years ago, I played tennis here. Vast amounts of green to be enjoyed and many baseball games to watch  more »

  • Just go here !!!! This is a fabulous gem right in Queens (though it is clearly on the Nassau border). Alley Pond Environmental Center offers a charming trail, and a neat indoor space which is particularly geared toward children, though all ages are welcome. I've been several times- on a quiet weekday we were lucky enough to hold and pet rabbits. The staff is friendly and welcoming. APEC also offers classes for all age groups. I wish my daughter was younger for a nature type of Mommy and Me.
  • We attended my son's best friend's birthday party. It was wonderful. The kids had a great time learning about all the animals. The center offers a good variety of programs for kids. We have to go check one out.
