Central Park Zoo

Built in 1859, the 6.5-acre Central Park Zoo was initially a humble menagerie, displaying a few swans and a bear. But, several spontaneous gifts of exotic animals and pets later, it was the second publicly owned zoo in the US.

The Central Park zoo was not worth our time. We saw a bear, penguins, birds, sea otters & went to the petting zoo. I was expecting more than that. My husband and I were not impressed.

I knew it was a small zoo, but there really weren’t a lot of animals even for a small zoo. Priced a little high for what was there.
