Central Park Zoo

Throughout the changing seasons, a diverse range of wildlife enjoys a comfortable home amid the bustle of Midtown.

Open year-round, the Central Park Zoo is home to animals from tropical, temperate, and polar parts of the world. Visit the sea lion tank in the center courtyard during feeding time to watch these sleek mammals perform tricks for their supper; this state-of-the-art facility features glass walls that offer a glimpse of their underwater acrobatics. Then head indoors to meet the penguins, seals, and snow leopards.
