    Better for older kids than small kids/toddlers since it's so big. Food is expensive and service is slow.

    Better when the weather is warmer but still good none the less.

    My favorite place to visit on the weekends. Summer gets a little crazy with families. I recommend going in the winter for a romantic, quite date

    Love this zoo but don't come during the "off season" winter months because everything is closed and you won't see half of the animals. May-October is their peak season.

    Few animals in the winter but large place to wander without a crowd.

    Mer Ici · January 20
  • Markus T.

    Probably one of the best zoos I've been to. Definitely check out the gorillas!

    Park outside the zoo and save yourself the $20+ parking fee.

    Animals are fun

    Massive zoo in the hood. Can spend all day there checking out exhibits. I think late afternoon may be best time to see the animals active otherwise may catch them hiding or sleeping

    Wesnesdays are general admission free!!

    It's an amazing place but it takes 2 days to cover the entire zoo.

    Support the zoo, it's the one place where kids can learn, and families can share time. I have been coming with my family since I was little.

    An incredible zoo - clean, fabulous petting zoo, and a staff that really seems to care.

    Animals are great, food is poor, security guards will hassle you if you lean back on a bench and look at the clouds.

    Dan Milano · September 1, 2015
  • Dee D.

    So much to see and do, you definitely need more than one day to see everything

    Dee Dee · August 27, 2015

    Great place to be a whole day being in touch with the nature and the animals

    Free Parking Also on Southern blvd. Just walk 1 long block across from Fordham U. Football field.

    Wednesday is a free day, but too crowded. All animals are too far to be seen. Waste of money if you go during other days.

    Oksana Ultraviolet · August 19, 2015
  • Andrew S.

    The gorillas exhibit and polar bear are both great.

    Andrew S · August 12, 2015

    Membership has its privileges

    John Power · August 8, 2015
  • Alex N.

    Student discounts are not advertised but super worth mentioning! Be prepared to walk A LOT. There is a shuttle but it only does pick ups on one of the four sides of the park...kind of stupid...

    Alex Nicholson · July 29, 2015
  • Ruth M.

    Beautiful place. You can easily spend an entire day here. Go for the Total Experience ticket and don't miss the Asia Monorail (red pandas!) and Jungle World exhibit.

    Go on Wednesday if you can. Half price and crowds are low before 1pm. Bring your own snacks and a water bottle to save money.

    Amazing zoo with incredible animals. The gorilla exhibit is worth the extra ticket price. Go for the full experience over general admission.

    The peacocks were my favorite, strutting around. Almost free as a bird, besides the fact they live in a zoo! Lots to see will come back hopefully the Tigers or the Lions

    $20 for general admission gets you to most of the zoo. The soft serve ice cream is also one of the best I've had.

    Kate Yan · May 3, 2015
  • Pamela S.

    The admission price is getting very expensive. I don't like that they charge extra for all the different activities. I have already paid a small fortune to get in.

    Pamela Schmidt · April 29, 2015

    Visit World of Birds for some of the most beautiful birds in the world, including Lesser Bird of Paradise and Andean Cock-of-the-Rock.
