New York City is known for being one of the greatest cities in the world. One of NYC's most popular attractions is Staten Island Zoo, located within Forest Park on Staten Island, New York. The zoo was founded in 1937 and has grown to be a fun place for all ages! What do you think of when I say Zoo? Do you imagine big animals in cages, roaming around with nothing to do all day? Well, the Staten Island Zoo is different. It's one of the friendliest places on earth! The animals are free to roam and enjoy life in their natural habitat. There are no bars or fences keeping them from exploring the world they live in every day. All this space offers a fun experience for both humans and animals alike! But don't take our word for it--come see Staten Island's only zoo yourself today. Learn more here.
Staten Island Zoo is not just a zoo. It's the world's friendliest zoo! Staten Island Zoo has many animal exhibits and programs to entertain your family for an entire day or even longer if you so choose. The Wildlife Theater offers live entertainment such as feeding talks, educational animal demonstrations and presentations from some of our wildlife ambassadors like owls, falcons and hawks. Our new Penguins Rock exhibit houses over twenty species of penguins in a state-of-the-art habitat that lets visitors get up close with these wonderful birds through underwater viewing windows within their saltwater pool.
