To be fair, I feel bad for the animals and rate them all average attest. It's kind of small but good for young kids. You can get in and out in a couple hours.

this zoo is rather small but we like it for more short visits or days when places like the bronx zoo are too far and too exhausting.. The animals are all in great settings and I know personally they are very well cared for. They have a lot of special events all year long so always check their website for more info!

It's a good place to visit for someplace close. It's reasonably priced and free on Wednesdays. They have a few good exhibits. It only takes about an hour to see everything. Being from Philadelphia I'm spoiled with the Philadelphia zoo, but it was something quick and cheap for my kids when we lived in Staten Island.

We try to find a zoo in every place we visit. This zoo was very clean and the animals were well taken care of. We watched the interaction between the keepers and the animals and the animals seemed very happy and content.

Nice little zoo that has a lot of smaller animals. Parking was adequate. Staff seemed happy to work there. They smiled a lot and were helpful. The cages were clean. The grounds were well kept. The petting zoo was very nice also. This is a great trip for small kids pre K- 5. I would say it's a mid-range trip (go early and have lunch when your done)
