Features: Located in NYC's most famous park, the Central Park Zoo is a small, inexpensive zoo featuring exotic animals and an indoor rainforest exhibit. Open 365 days a year, the New York Zoo Central Park is a family-friendly NYC attraction that your kids will love.

Why We Go: The Central Park Zoo is an intimate NY zoo with a number of fun and interesting exhibits. Also, if you're looking to continue the educational fun after the Central Park Zoo in NYC experience, this popular NYC attraction is surrounded by the American Museum of Natural History and MoMA.

  • Polar Bears: The polar bear pool at the new York Zoo Central Park is one of the premier exhibits at this family-friendly NYC attraction.

  • Rainforest Exhibit: The rainforest exhibit at the New York Zoo Central Park includes snakes, poisionous frogs, and other slimy creatures you'll only want to look at through glass.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring the Kids: Kids will have a great time at the family-friendly Zoo at Central Park in NYC. The Central Park Zoo takes about two hours to walk through, and children-friendly exhibits at the zoo include the reptile area and the penguin exhibit.
  • Do Visit the Rainforest: The indoor rainforest exhibit is one of the premier attractions at the Zoo at Central Park in NY, and includes poisonous frogs, snakes and lizards - all from behind the glass, of course.
  • Don't Drive: The Central Park Zoo in NY does not offer any on-site parking. While there are nearby parking garages, we recommend just taking to the subway to one of several stations surrounding the New York Zoo Central Park.
  • Don't Miss the Penguins: What's cuter than penguins enjoying an afternoon in Central Park?
