Great zoo with lots of tree cover so you don't get baked in hot sun of summer, Wednesday is free admission day in city so be warned! Also has a good Christmas stroll during off seasons. Get a schedule of feedings so you can plan your day

A great day out in the middle of December. A short walk from the subway station and a lovely day out. The staff were helpful and the animals in fine form!

My wife and I go every season, her favorite part is the children's zoo where you can feed and pet the animals.

I Love This Very Large Zoo Out In The Bronx! I have been staying in the Bronx for almost one month doing an extensive tour and on many occasions, I must pass by this Zoo on the bus. By the looks of it, it was HUGE! I honestly thought that it would take me more than one day to see... More

I LOVE the Bronx Zoo which I have been going to since 1953! and was looking forward to attending the exhibit. Calling it a train exhibit is a misnomer it should be called mini landmark building show Whoever designed and constructed the bldgs. is a genius! It's over priced sine the exhibit is really about 15 minutes and most of... More

The NY Botanical Garden is located near the Bronx Zoo, however, our facilities are not related in any way. We would encourage you to redirect your concerns to nybg.org More

The zoo was enormous and amazing but because we went during winter, many animals weren't out. The zoo can easily be done in one day :)

I will start by giving the negative...We had a really hard time finding where to park at this zoo and when we finally did parking was high. When we arrive at the gate, it costs my family of 5 an arm and leg to enter the gates....One good thing is that they have military discounts. So bring your credit card... More
