Small but nicely spread out facility, has a nice variety of animals and birds. Great for younger kids, as there is a petting zoo that they really enjoy. Membership is reasonable, if you live in the New York City area, and parking is easy, though there are a lot of steps from the parking lot to the zoo itself, if... More

This is a zoo focused primarily on North American animal life, and shows Puma, Mountain Lions, Andrean Bears, California Sea Lions, Prarie Dogs, Wolves, and many avian species such as Owls & Turkey. A lovely walk, this zoo is ideal for families with small children, with a section dedicated for petting areas (sheep, goats, donkeys, cows, alpaca) across the way... More

This is a cute zoo! I was in the Flushing - Meadows park out in Queens today and while visiting one of the other museums, I discovered the Queens Zoo just by Word Of Mouth. Unfortunately, it was Not listed on the Wikipedia, however, I did manage to learn that the Queens Borough has their very own zoo which contains... More

While staying at the Holiday Inn Express LaGuardia Airport we walked to the Queens Zoo. We noticed several school buses dropping off groups there, and debated whether to visit. We did and it was a wise choice as this is a small but very well designed zoo featuring Americas species in their natural habitat. It was a pleasant walk made... More

I'm so glad that Queens has this zoological park! Although it doesn't compare in size to the one in the Bronx, it remains a fun and interesting place for adults and children alike. The animals are in a natural habitat and the birds, in particular, are fun to watch as they fly about in the expansive aviary. When you leave... More

This is a great little zoo in Flushing Meadow Park. Not too large and overwhelming. There is a great Aviary, with a suspended walkway. Perfect for a visit, while you're in Flushing.

Zoo set inside the park in flushing. We decided to visit after going to US open tennis stadium. It's in a really pretty location, lots of trees and greenery around. I think it's probably best suited for younger children as the children I went with are a little older and got through everything quite quickly. Although it is bigger than... More

A very nice location for the family with small children. The zoo has a very nice selection of animals. The zoo is customer friendly with emphasis on families with small children. The Zoo is located in Flushing Meadow Park which was the location of the 60's World Fair. After visiting the Zoo you can take a stroll in a very... More

The Queens Zoo is a nice place to stop by while you're in Flushing Meadow Park or if you just want to get out of the house for a while. Of the 5 WCS attractions, this one concentrates most on North and South American wildlife. If you've never had a chance to see bison in the wild, stop by here... More

If you do not have an entire day to walk around a large zoo and want to see many animals with little effort than this is the zoo for you. It is located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, you know the 1934 and 1964 worlds fair site. Well, anyway after you explore the zoo and petting zoo there is a... More
