It is true that this zoo is beautiful. It is also quite small. The praises here about affordability are quite antiquated. It isn't cheap anymore. You are almost better off buying a family membership for a year at 100 dollars. You can visit

I am a professional Nanny for families with young children. The adventure playground on 67tth and 5th avenue is one of the best playgrounds in Central Park, for young children Especially during the hot summer months. There is an awesome

I live a block away and will take any chance I get to stroll through the park. It??s hard to add to the rest of the reviews, but I??m just another person who can vouch for the park??s serenity and beauty.

When it??s nice out, I don??t know why I bother having a dinner table in my apartment. I always go to the park and eat on the benches.

Pros: Can't get much prettier

Cons: Good only when nice out

Central Park is GORGEOUS. Do you have a day off from work? Is it nice outside? Do whatever it takes to get to Central Park and just absorb the beautiful surroundings. If you??re not into that type of stuff, just bring a book or newspaper along and sit anywhere. There are tons of benches, but I prefer the open grass areas.

Central Park is also a great place to get some exercise. Running and biking seem to be the most popular, but there are also baseball and softball fields as well as tennis courts that are easy to sign up. I??m not a member of my local gym and I plan to stay that way now that I have a great place to go outdoors.

One last thing, the Boat House up on 72nd street is a sight worth taking your girlfriend or wife. Its breathtaking view is worth the walk and if you have the means, I hear the food at the restaurant next to the water is amazing as well. I saw people getting married here. That??s how nice it is.

It is in the middle of Manhattan. The Bronx Zoo may be fine, but as far as convenience. The Central Park Zoo is a must. Just don't feed the Polar Bear.

I decided to go here on whim after walking through the park. I was alone, but I had such a great time. There's not a ton of animals like the Bronx Zoo, but it's an intimate atmosphere and small enough to easily walk around and not get too tired. I watched the polar bears for a good twenty minutes. It started to rain, but there's plenty of awning and indoor exhibits to take refuge in. Mostly all the animals were out and about doing stuff. They don't take credit or debit, but for $6 who cares?!

Pros: great price, cute animals, intimate park

Took my 7 year old daughter - not a lot to see which translates to very little walking which is good, SHE LOVED IT ! Despite that there are not many animals, the ones that are there are VERY entertaining and close up with a great view of them !

Small but perfect, this zoo takes you from one world to another. Beautifully landscaped, with lovely, natural exhibits, the adults in our family always love trips here as much as the kids.

Pros: Beatiful, Easy to navigate, Inexpensive

We recently spent the afternoon here and were delighted to find such a small fee for such a great treat! $3.50 for adults and 50 cents (really!) for children! The wildlife center is small enough to get through in about an hour but exciting enough for children and adults of all ages. There are posted times for different "chats" about the animals, feedings and skits. Spend an afternoon here and enjoy!

I recently took my 14-month-old son to the Central Park Wildlife Center and he loved it...as soon as we entered the penguin room he started squealing in delight. It's a relaxed zoo where crowds are thankfully thin. And with a quick snack at the cafe, the whole thing cost us less than $10.
