…and I mean that almost literally. While its 5 acres makes it much smaller than, say, the Bronx Zoo, the Central Park Zoo nonetheless has fun, charm, and (of course) animals to bedazzle and delight. With a low fee to enter and a high amount of amusement to be had, going is a no-brainer.
Taking the Trip
Getting into the Zoo is easy. All you need is a ticket! You can buy children’s tickets for $13 at the gate, or adult tickets for $18. You can also save 10% if you buy online. You can even consider buying a membership, if you see yourself going a lot — this gets you unlimited access to all areas of the zoo. Zoo hours are from 10am to 4:30pm through April. So head on over!
One Well-Red Panda
The Zoo is home to a number of endangered species, including the absolutely adorable red panda! These creatures are natural climbers, and use their long, bushy tails to help them keep their balance as they scramble up, down, and through the trees. But don’t take our word for it — go see for yourself in the Zoo’s Temperate Zone!
Tisch, Tisch, Tisch
And, of course, if you’ve brought along the kids, you’ll want to stop by the Tisch Children’s Zoo! Here you can find all manner of kid-friendly animals, such as pot-bellied pigs, sheep, and goats. You’ll also find plenty of ways for your children to jump, run, climb, and crawl — which is good, since we all know the real point of bringing kids to a zoo is to wear them out as completely as possible. You can even take some time to enjoy the cuteness of the whole situation for yourself. Don’t worry — we won’t judge.
With so many things to do and creatures to see, it’s no wonder that — even with its small size — the Central Park Zoo is so popular. Whether you want a chance to see animals from the tropics, the arctic, or the farm, you’ll get the opportunity here. And come over with us on Seastreak! You’re on your feet all day at a zoo — no need to spend even more energy on an exhausting drive in and out of the city! Because, as the song goes, “We’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo, how about you, you, you…”
Sea you Soon!
