Central Park Zoo

Open year-round, the Central Park Zoo is home to animals from tropical, temperate, and polar parts of the world. This state-of-the-art facility features a sea lion pool in the center courtyard; glass walls offer a glimpse of their underwater acrobatics.

Throughout the changing seasons, a diverse range of wildlife enjoys a comfortable home amid the bustle of Midtown. Visit the sea lion tank during feeding time to watch these sleek mammals perform tricks for their supper, or head indoors to meet the penguins, seals, and snow leopards.
