  • I've been going to the Staten Island Zoo since I was little. The exhibits and staff have changed over the years, but the wonderful experience the S.I. Zoo provides has not. It is not a large Zoo, you can see and do everything in a few hours, including having lunch in the cafe. Some animals you can feed, and there are indoor facilities housing animals from Africa; a large reptile collection; and an aquarium (currently being refurbished.) Sometimes the Zoo has special exhibits. I remember going to see the wolf, downstairs in one of the main buildings they have a large space for meetings/events. They also have an outdoor tent they use for smaller venues. Some years ago, I ran a youth group and one of our activities that year was going to the Staten Island Zoo. We had a few chaperones and we just showed up. The zoo staff treated us so well! Even though we were unexpected, having not told the zoo we had a group coming in they had a staff member treat our us as if we were a scheduled school group. The staff member took us through a tour of the zoo, brought us upstairs to the classrooms, and had other staff bring out animals for the kids to touch and learn about, and I will always appreciate and remember what they did for us.
  • Been going here since i was a child. My brother in-law worked here and gave me access to nehind the scenes. The animals are well care for and the employees here make the experience great for not only the visitors but also the animal for which they care for.
  • Grew up here. Love bringing my kids here whenever we can. They've done some great things with more improvements coming
  • 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.
  • EXCELLENT PLACE!!!! THEY ALWAYS VARE CHANGING. NEW EXHIBITS . FAMILY ORIENTED. I LIKE THE OUTSIDE ZOO. NATURAL IS EXCELKENT FOR CHILDREN.
