  • Great little Zoo with great fun for little fun. Don't expect an elephant or a Bangle Tiger there, but you will see everything else. Kid can run a round safely. The feeding and patting section is great for toddlers. Washing facilities are right there. The restrooms are clean. Don't expect perfection. Expect to have a great time with your kids. Also keep an eye out for special events. Don't listen to other review about food choices; its a zoo and not a restaurant. There is a pick nick table area. You will spend there at least 2 hours if you do it right and take the time to enjoy.
  • If you are non-white tourist, the ticket lady will make sure that you pay by cash. When we wanted to purchase tickets, she punched in the amount in the card machine and immediately pressed cancel. She did that 8 times pretending that the card is not being processed. I paid cash after an argument. The zoo itself houses very limited number of animals. Not worth the humiliation, time, effort and cost.
  • Small but excellent. Perfect for small children Awesome new endangered species carousel Petting Zoo is cozy and intimate, you can get very up close. Indoor and outdoor displays are renovated and kept current. Very impressive venomous snake collection *A different review states that parking can be a problem- this is only true if you attempt to park on Broadway. There is a very large parking lot on Clove Road which is absolutely never full, more than ample
  • I haven't been to The Staten Island Zoo in probably 15 years. Last time I ever even drove past was 8 years ago before I moved to Texas, but I found myself up here for a sad family event and didn't want my son to only think of New York as a sad place to go. Admission was free because a lot of the areas were closed because they were setting up for the Spooktacular event that was happening the following night. He still had a blast.
  • A great little zoo. It's not large, but it's a good place to take your little one that won't be too daunting. Very nicely laid out and well maintained.
