  • This is a great zoo to take the kids for a quick trip. It's small and really nice to walk through. They have a nice variety of animals to keep the kids curious, interested and entertained. When I visit I usually pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it on the picnic tables.
  • I was told that with the zoo pass that was purchased at the Bronx zoo would cover this zoo but it doesnt....little disappointed in that and that late in the year and some animals and the fish section were closed or not available. Other than that it was pretty awesome and for 2 adults and 2 kids $32 wasn't that bad. Got here before they opened had parking right by the door and was in and out in about 2 hours.
  • Small zoo which is very quaint and family oriented. Entry fee is reasonable, $10 for adults, $6 for children 3+ (free under 3). They have a $2 carousel, price covers one child and one adult. They have a restaurant that serves hot dogs, burgers etc. And a nice up close section with ponies, sheep and llamas.
  • One of the VERY few reasons to actually be on Staten Island. Great little city zoo complete with kids zoo and carousel. They have remodeling the aquarium area for the last 3 or 4 years which is the only minus, otherwise 5 stars.
  • Last there 40+ years ago, much improved. Small animals nicely displayed. Good variety. Adults maybe 3hrs longer with kids. Find a discount.
