Not too many people are aware that there’s two more zoos in New York City besides the Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo, which is the zoo that most people know.
One is the Prospect Park Zoo in Brooklyn and the zoo that I visited, the Queens Zoo.
The Queens Zoo is located in the Flushing Meadows Corona Park , which is 111st in Flushing Queens.
It’s open everyday 10am until 4:30pm in winter or up until March 31.
In the warmer months or April until November it’s open 10 am until 5pm on weekdays and 5:30pm on weekends and holidays .
Don’t expect to see giraffes, lions or tigers in this zoo.
It focuses mainly on animals that inhabit North and South America .
You’ll even find a section in the zoo where you pet and feed the animals.
They even encourage you to.
There was so much going on in this zoo that I’m dividing my pictures from Queens Zoo into parts one and two.
Enjoy the pictures from part one.
