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

I have taken my classes here several times. It is a small, but wonderfully run zoo. It is perfect for young children, or when you don't want to spend hours and hours at the zoo. All the animals are original to North America, so you won't be observing any African animals that the kids love to see. Get to the... More

This was very interesting for my kids and they enjoyed being able to see different animals. After we settle at our nice big clean hotel room.

I have been coming to The Queens Zoo for years now! My daughters are older now and I haven't been in a few years. Today I enjoyed a few hours with my niece & nephew. It is a perfect size to walk thru with small children. I enjoyed the new educational areas that were added on. The only thing I... More

This is in no way the Bronx zoo but for an afternoon stroll thru a park-like zoo this is a good choice. There is a petting zoo on one side of the street and the other side has the more "exotic" animals.

On a hot weekend day, my sister, niece and I trekked out on the 7 train to 111th St. to visit the Queens Zoo. The Zoo turned out to be about a 15-minute walk from the subway. It was definitely worth the ride! Approaching the entrance to the Zoo, one traverses blacktop surrounded by a thicket of trees on both... More
