  • It was fun for the kids but due to the lack of animals it was a short day.petting zoo was fun and kids had fun 
  • We took kods ages 1-12. It seemed like a very lame zoo with not so many animals. The petting zoo was nice but very little variety of animals 
  • This zoo is small but turned out great for us with our our toddler granddaughter. The admission fee of $8 per adult is reasonable, the total walking distance of about a mile is very manageable, and th...  more »
  • This is such a wonderful oasis in the middle of Queens! I am disabled, so walking long distances is extremely painful. This zoo, however, is just perfect, and it has a lot of benches. By the time I got tired, I had seen the entire zoo. Couldn't do the aviary, but that's OK. It's not crowded. The animals are in natural habitat. I saw some very unusual creatures, and the ducks were very entertaining. The children's petting zoo is great, with all those goats, sheep, llama and alpaca. My husband and I had a wonderful time. I will be going back.
  • Perfect size although all outdoors so make sure the weather cooperates. There is a petting zoo on one side with domesticated animals like cows and goats and the other side has wild animals like bears, bison, and alligators etc as well as a cute playground for kids to play. The signs throughout the zoo were cute and educational.
  • If your expectations are set appropriately, this is a great zoo. It is not the Bronx zoo. It is a neighborhood zoo that is great for toddlers and younger kids who like to feed farm animals and stop to see some sea lions get fed. As such, admission is cheap, it is not crowded and the staff is nice. Bring quarters and baggies to pay for and hold the goat food.
  • A great neighborhood zoo that is kid and family friendly. Though the exhibits are small and somewhat limited, this is more than made up for by the free (clean, spacious, not crowded at all) petting zoo where it looks like the animals are actually happy and well cared for, and the friendly, patient, and knowledgeable staff.
  • It was a great time to spend time with family and friends although it was pretty small. Though the detail in the zoo made it hard to realise the size. It was very close to many other things like a small amusement park and petting zoo. It was not crowded at all and is pretty hidden away. There is only one place to get food though and insect repellent is recommended.
