Central Park Zoo Tours

Central Park is a must-see for any visitor to New York City, and the small zoo within it is no exception. The daily feedings  of the sea lions and the penguins always draw a crowd (the sea lions do tricks for their snacks), and the paths through the zoo’s five acres lead through a variety of habitats designed to recreate the animals’ natural environments. Around the sea lions’ pool (which has glass sides to better see the sleek animals under water) is a perennial garden with plenty of bench seating.

The Tisch Children's Zoo lets kids get up close and personal with domestic animals like sheep, goats, cows, and even a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. Little ones can pop a quarter in an animal-feed dispenser and let the animals eat from their hands, and they can touch small bronze sculptures of the animals next to each pen that emit the sounds of the animals they represent. Right in the middle of the Children's Zoo lies the Enchanted Forest, with sculptures of trees, acorns, and a giant spider. The zoo is also home to a musical clock, which plays a different tune every half hour while animals with musical instruments dance around its base.

Practical Info

The various zoo exhibits offer interactive classes that include live animal encounters and other unique experiences. Feeding times are 11:30am, 2pm, and 4pm. Total experience tickets cost $18 for adults, $13 for kids 3 to 12, $15 for seniors 65 and over, and kids 2 and younger enter free. This includes the main zoo, Tisch Children’s Zoo, and one entry to the 4-D Theater.
