Manhattan's small but beloved menagerie is nestled within Central Park's southeast corner. Opened in the 1860s, it was the city's first zoo and has become a popular landmark since. Among its many species on view it features a chilled penguin house, an indoor rainforest, and most recently a snow leopard exhibit. It's central location is ideal for tourists, close in proximity to sights like the Plaza Hotel and the fancier stretch of Fifth Avenue stores. For families with children its just a short hop to FAO Schwarz or the park's playground.
The Central Park Zoo’s exhibits are surrounded by the picturesque Manhattan skyline and the trails of New York’s most famous park. Just steps from Fifth Avenue, you can chill out with penguins and polar bears or warm up with our tropical rainforest critters. Meet big cats in the big city at our newest exhibit, the Allison Maher Stern Snow Leopard Exhibit.
