The Bronx Zoo is the largest urban zoo in the United States. It houses thousands of animals, ranging from lions and monkeys to sea lions and sloths. The Congo exhibit features lowland gorillas, pythons and other central African animals. A modern zoo, it places animals into re-creations of their own ecosystems. Also, a plethora of activities held at the zoo provide an educating and entertaining experience for adults as well as children.
I took my then 3 year old to the zoo, and plan to take her again this yers. It is an amzing place. The Gorilla exhibit is simply amazing. I could have stayed and watched the Gorillas for hours~! Cant wait to go again!~
I really liked visiting the Bronx zoo. You should come see the Bronx zoo because it is very educational. I learned there are many different kinds of animals. And I saw a giraffe that had just had a baby, and that was really awesome. So I recommend going!!
My husband and I went to 2007. Now we have a 14 month old that adores animals, we were waiting for the summer rush to go down, and we should be taking him in a couple weeks. But the zoo has soooo much to see and do. We were there since opening, and stayed until like 7pm, and still hadn't seen everything, but we were sooo tired from all the walking we decided to head home, so defi bring a comfy pair of shoes. But I do agree with a previous poster that the area is a bit unwelcoming, but once inside, its a totally different story.
i think overall the experience at the zoo was great. walking up to the zoo, the area is a little unwelcoming but once inside the zoo there is SO much to see. on wednesdays its free day. its only donations if you want to. we went on a wednesday and i don't think i would do it again because it was packed with tons of school kids. its definetly worth it to buy the all included attraction tickets so that you can take the shuttle around the park because it is very spaced out. and the asian transit tour was very cool. its about 20 minutes and you take this loop with a bunch of cool things including a cute little panda bear. we didn't get to tour the whole park because was a little to crowded. also there is tons of baby animals right now.
Our family enjoyed the Bronx Zoo. The animals were plentiful and visible. The staff was pleasant.
We saw lions and tigers, bears, giraffes, elephants, rhinos and cheetas. New this summer are the wild african dogs.
The attractions were great. There is a monorail that takes you on a tour of Asia. The is a gondola that cruises over the zoo from one side to the other. The Congo Jungle with the Gorillas was great.
The entrance prices were ordinary ($12 adults) but the attractions are costly (either $3-$5 each or $13 for all). So $25 for everything. I was surprised to see a $6 hot dog even in NYC.
With the wild and crazy atmospher of NYC, what better place to have a Zoo. It is the best of both worlds. You enter and see a world beyond immagination. Monkeys, Lions, Seals, Pandas. It's a reflection of NYC. Its a great deal "safari" and it is great to go by yourself, with family, or with friends.
Bring a gorrilla doll to the monkey cages and just watch there reactions.
ps. seeing eye dogs should be left home, the bobcats dont really like them.
