  • It was alright for a short day trip. Enjoyed the sea lion feeding, and the peacocks & other birds walking around was cool.  more »
  • This is a very nice small zoo. Nice collection of animals, with a petting area where the kids can feed the animals  more »
  • A great neighborhood zoo...perfect for little kids. The snack bar has a lot of room for improvement. All junk food - and not much to choose from. A shame when there's so much good food in the neighbor...  more »

  • This is a really nice, small zoo. It's great for kids because it's not so daunting as the Bronx zoo and it has many activities in addition to the animals. A little smaller than the Central Park Zoo (which is also fantastic for kids), the Prospect Park Zoo is a place that you could spend an hour running through, or a few hours, doing all that there is to be done. There are crafts by the meerkats, a feeding zoo, some structures for the kids to play on, peacocks (or peahens, not sure) which are ubiquitous to all of the zoos here, and plenty more. I highly recommend anyone getting a WCS membership because having this place available whenever is great for those days off from school since it is right on the park, and next to the Botanic Garden and Prospect Park Carousel.
  • This is a great little zoo. Very good for families and kids. Small enough to see everything in an afternoon, but has plenty of interesting​ things to see. The have a small petting zoo. You can buy food from to had feed some of the goats and sheep.
  • Very nice but small zoo for a day visit, get ready for a walking day. My dad use to bring us here as kids, I've took my kids as well. This was very different zoo back then from when my dad took us. It's been updated nowadays. If your into family time spent in an outing, then this is for you. Plus you also have the Brooklyn Botanical Garden across the street to also enjoy, if you want to continue your family outing. It's a bit expensive, thats why i gave it four stars. So learn to save like I have. Buy your yearly membership pass that best fits your needs. It's also good for Bronx zoo, Central Park zoo and NY Aquarium. So four places to visit in a year time. Parking is free for Bronx zoo and NY Aquarium. Plus I pack up lunch/sandwiches, snakes, fruits and drinks; head back to the car for lunch time to eat. That's just another way to save money. You also get 10% off on shops and food purchases with your membership pass.
  • It's a cozy zoo and not crowded. It's small but space is utilized well. Peacocks walk around the zoo and is always fun to see. We love watching sea lion feeding and going to the barn area. The indoor parts are also enjoyed by our family.
  • Food was what you would call, zoo food, but otherwise interesting place to visit, and cool animals. Along with nice smart staff.
