Although not in any way of the scale of the Bronx Zoo, the Queens Zoo it an extremely well designed zoo with plenty of animals and beautifully landscaped grounds. A nice plus is that there are a lot of shade trees on the paths, so going on a hot day should not be a problem. In some ways, because of... More

Took my 3 grand-kids on a summer afternoon. They enjoyed all the animals; especially getting up close to and feeding the farm animals. Also nearby is the Playground for All Children, where we spent the remainder of the day.

What a wonderful place to visit especially if you like nature and animals; you forget there are large buildings and massive amounts of cars not too far off in the distance; great place to take a breath of relaxation and pass some time onto the little critters.

When we left we learned how to develop a better respect for our earth. How to take better care of it. We returned to school and... More

This is also known as "The Queens Zoo". It is a lot smaller than the Bronx Zoo, but if you are looking for a relaxing day with the kids with no crowds, this is the place to go, plus the NY Hall of Science is nearby, which the kids will love. (Just check the hours of the Hall of Science,... More
