Still fun to visit. Quiet and not as crowded as other zoos. Reptiles and prairie dogs are my favorites.

This is not a big Zoo, so you can complete it with just a few hours. Kids love it. Not expensive, plenty for all ages to enjoy.

It was not bad, some sections were going to be rebuilt and that will be a big improvement. I guess it is better than no zoo, The best part for us was the LARGEST RODENTS- wow were they huge.

The Staten Island Zoo is a great place to kill some time, it's a small zoo however they have wonderful animal exhibit and a cool little aquarium. I will admit that I show some concern about a few small exhibits for some of the bigger animals. Although over all it's a beautiful time to spend and educate with the kids.
