My wife and I visited this zoo, located in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, on a balmy summer weekday. It has no parking lot of its own---the only parking available is street parking along Flatbush Avenue South, so taking mass transit is advisable. The zoo is compact, and it contains no large mammals---no bears, lions, tigers, hippos, elephants, etc. But the exhibits it does contain are well designed, both indoors and out, and it is well worthwhile for a family or group of young children (under age 10, I'd say). You can see the entire zoo in a little more than one hour, though one can spend as much time as one wants in the petting/barn area. Because it is designed for young children, there is very little information (other than basic identification) about the animals in each enclosure. Refreshments are available from vending machines only, though there is a reasonably large, air-conditioned seating area to enjoy your snack or beverage. Recommended for young children only (and their parents/guardians or grandparents).
