  • As you'd expect in a zoo of this size - the range of animals to see is very limited. The sea lion show and feeding the water birds were the high points. 
  • Spend an entertaining evening visiting Brooklyn Zoo. While it has no large mammals found in other zoos animals are very well groomed, even there are species of farm, and is pretty.

  • It's a great zoo for an afternoon trip. It's a great small zoo to take kids under 7. If you need to kill an afternoon this is the place.

  • Surprisingly big for a small zoo! Be sure to check out the first set of exhibits near the metal octopus. And definitely hit the petting zoo!
  • Great place for kids and adults alike. It's a beautiful example of landscaping and a great source knowledge. Our kids loved the hands-on activities and all the programs there. The staff is really knowledgeable and friendly which makes the experience worth the while. Not a large park but definitely but a great child memory for sure!
  • Small zoo but very pretty. Make a day trip of this and the botanical gardens across the street.
  • I loved it. The kids loved it. Especially the seeing the seals feed and being able to feed the ducks and the (opaccahs) and cows. We also loves the chipanzees at play. We all left very happy.
  • Well organized and well designed zoo, the animals seems pretty happy too! Perfect for a nice sunny weekend!
