Queens Zoo has a lot of very fun exhibits, including the panda bears. The zoo is quite large and the animals are displayed in their natural habitat. Children of all ages will enjoy riding the train throughout the zoo, which is a highlight of the trip. The zoo is more costly than other zoos I have been to, and they are not quite as large as other states zoos. A zoo membership is a good idea for families who want to visit the zoo more often. I had fun, but it was a little pricey to see odoriferous animals. I realize that it costs a lot to maintain the animal's habitat, but I just did not enjoy as much as I had hoped. Even as a child, I was not terribly impressed (although that was a while ago).

This zoo is a nice compact zoo. When you go to the Bronx Zoo, you inevitably have to spend the whole day there and by the time you're done, you're dead tired. This zoo, on the other hand, you can see in one to two hours. They also have a petting zoo and farm (on the other side) which is also included in the price of admission. Speaking of admission, the price is very reasonable, much cheaper than the Bronx Zoo. There is also a $1 carousel right there in the park next to the Zoo.

I love this zoo... is small enough but big enough to enjoy... you walk on a nature trip thru areas where animals native to north america are housed. there are nice plnts and plenty of trees on a hot day the trees are good for shade. this a great zoo for smaller children because it just the right size for them.. the bronz zoo it too big and crowded,,, this zoo is very inexpensive..it is clean too,, they also have a farm animal petting zoo across from the main zoo.. I go at least once a year...

explore the sense of touch, including live animals, Programs for older children include the Snooze at the Zoo: Rain Forest Retreat, where children embark on an exciting parent-child adventure about the rain forest, meet tropical animals, and enjoy a special Wildlife Theater performance, games and a nighttime exploration of our own tropical rain forest.

This zoo is very small due to the number of its exhibits because it is a large space. You have to do a lot of walking and there isn't too much to see. The seals are always entertaining, as are the bears. There is a Petting Zoo/ Farm across the way where you can feed the goats and other animals.

The Queens Zoo is not a massive undertaking as the Bronx Zoo or as meticulously taken care of like The Central Park Zoo with it's huge budget but it perserveres and offers a nice selection of animals, most on the smallish side. You sense the workers here are here because they really love the animals and it is the most kid friendly of the New York Zoos.

You've probably never heard of this zoo. Even if you've been to Corona Park, where it's located. I randomly saw a sign for it when we went to see the Panorama at the Queens Museum, and ducked in to check it out. It's done up like a "park" to help hide the lack of content. It's American animal themed, which should probably give you a hint about the kind of uninteresting animals you'll find, although they do have a Spectacled Bear. It is good and cheap though, so it migh be worth it if you're killing time before a baseball game with kids.
