  • We popped into the Zoo whilst in Brooklyn for the day. Its a really nice little zoo and is cheap as chips for all the family. 
  • 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.
  • My wife, kids and I love this place. We REALLY love and highly recommend the sea lion feeding! Make sure you check the times and stay for it. You will not be disappointed. Be sure to also see the other areas too and explore all the buildings.
  • My favorite place as a child. This zoo is awesome! Animals are fun to see, lots of cool activities and info, a small cafe for food, and a great location! I recommend this!
  • This zoo is a wonderful destination with kids year-round - there are 2 indoor pavilions, plus daily sea lion shows/feedings, a childrens zoo and a farm. Worth getting a family membership for unlimited trips to the Prospect Park Zoo (plus the Bronx, Central Park, Queens and the Aquarium).
  • This is a great place to take young kids. My five year old said he was bored but he seemed to enjoy feeding the cows and goats. There are peacocks roaming around that kept trying to steal my kids sandwiches when we were eating outside. This was funny to me but frightening for the kids.
