Just amazing. I went here with my friends and family many times....it's a refreshing experience all the time. I was never tired to see all the nature and beauty of this place. So small but so elegant. I was always a fond of animals....loved animals. I recommend this place to family and nerdy friends. Just to talk and take a scroll.....spent some time away from our busy lives. ......it's refreshing...
This zoo was perfect for our family visit. Only a train ride away from Brooklyn. They served beer 😎. We were able to tour the whole zoo in under 2 hours and then enjoy a nice lunch that we brought with us. It was a bit colder than we had expected but at least there wasn't any rain. The staff were very helpful and the premises were kept clean. Of course they have at nice selection of animals to see
