The Central Park Zoo

San Diego Zoo Safari Park Toledo Zoo The Central Park Zoo St. Louis Zoo
Woodland Park Zoo Visiting Famous Zoos    

This zoo is located near the southeast corner of Central park at 64th Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York.  It features more than 150 species from around the globe.  It is a terrific family destination where you can visit for an hour or a day.  Every attraction is beautifully designed.

Zoo Exhibits

The Central Garden and Sea Lion Exhibit is terrific and allows you to get a great underwater view through the pool's glass walls.  The sea lion feeding and presentation must be fit into your schedule.  At various times during the day zookeepers demonstrate how they give routine care and feed the sea lions who love to impress the crowds.  Enjoy the Polar Circle where you will find polar bears, penguins and seals.  The polar bear view area is three levels: underwater, rock level and from above. You can see these beautiful animals glide and tumble in the water, or play with toys and eat on the land.  Enjoy videos of penguins in their natural habitat and check the schedule so you can meet with the seals for meal time.  The Allison Maher Stern Snow Leopard Exhibit  is a terrific exhibit where you can see these awesome cats play and leap on rocks from two viewing locations.  Temperate Territory is home to snow monkeys, red pandas and migratory birds.  Tisch Children's Zoo, designed for kids 6 and under, is a great interactive place for the kids to hop on lily pads and climb on a giant spiderweb as well as feed some barnyard animals.  It is sure to be a hit with the kids.  The Tropic Zone: The Rainforest  is a walk-through rainforest exhibit which is a unique experience with viewing platforms at various levels to see all of the animal activity that is happening in this exhibit.
