Very nice zoo to walk around and connect with nature. The animals were all spotted. The petting zoo allows you to be up close and personal.

Unexpectedly delightful. Not a large zoo, to be sure, but well worth the $10 entrance fee for a lovely hour walk around the pleasant grounds. One of the original cage-less zoos, all the animals come from the Americas (with many South American creatures represented). Be...More

The Queens Zoo is small, but very complete. It even has a farm where you can interact with the animals

The zoo is divided into two parts, a small zoo and a petting farm. We always have lots of fun feeding the animals at the petting zoo. We also enjoy the beautiful aviary dome which you should definitely visit! There’s a small playground as well.

This is a great zoo to visit on a low key day in Queens. Not as big as the Bronx Zoo but is just fine. Plenty of animals and exhibits to see.

Excellent Underrated Zoo. Petting zoo is also fun for the kids. Great seal show as well, right by the snack bar.

Beautifully-kept zoo in the middle of a nice park in Queens. The zoo is specifically for species native to the Americas so I can't understand why people complain that there are no lions and tigers etc. Numerous excellent enclosures, with the geodesic aviary and the...More
