It’s the smallest zoo I’ve been to but super cute because it’s in Central Park. Best part is the grizzly bear and penguins. If you visit during Christmas be sure to watch the 4D movie. Super cute

As the title says, we loved the zoo so much (honestly it's great value for money) that we went on the first day and the last day of our holiday - I could have watched the sea lions for hours. Really helpful staff, not too...More
