Owner description: The largest urban zoo in the U.S., with over 6,000 animals within its 265 acres of parks, woods and streams.

Multiple species, many in special environments, some that have been saved from near extinction (bison, Pere David's deer, snow leopard, African wild dogs) are on view in this vast zoological park.There are indoor and outdoor exhibits, seasonal exhibits and child-friendly exhibits. There is a tram for those who cannot walk great distances or are just tired. A fabulous display of many species, and handsome animals. Feeding times and "enrichment" times may be the best moments to view certain animal behaviours.

This zoo experience was an awesome experience. I was especially impressed with the Dinosaur Safari! The cost seemed overpriced to experience everything! I was disappointed the Madagascar Exhibit was closed on the day we went! Be prepared to walk a lot and be prepared to wait in long lines for shuttle service. I love seeing the interactions of the animals. Warning: Peacocks roam freely with the public and that was amazing!!! I actually was able to walk up to a peacock! The 15 minute 4D movie was a little overrated. Overall, great park!!!!

Food did taste good. Selections was your basic fries, tenders, etc. Nothing too crazy. Sitting area is nice, however watch out for those pesky birds, they are hungry. Guard your plate!

I have been at the Bronx Zoo many times, but this zoo always makes me happy. Not sure if it is the combination of NYC and safari animals, dinosaur exhibit, polar bear and different atmospheres taht will make you believe that you are not at the concrete jungle that NYC is!! Is a must see in NYC!

I come from a family of zoo lovers, and have been to probably 20-25 different zoos in the US. I would rate Bronx Zoo at or near the top. It is beautifully landscaped and clean. The exhibits were well-designed for the guests and animals alike (although a few are too small). We really enjoyed and will definitely return.
