“A great zoo in an intimate setting”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

One of the great attractions in Staten Island or the area for that matter. Snakes, fish, alligators, a petting zoo, horse rides, and more.

“Nice place to visit.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Fun place to bring your children. I used to bring my kids when they were young now I go with my grandchildren. It's fun place to spend the day. It's also the home of the famous groundhog "Chuck". Many improvements have been made over the years to enhance your zoo experience.

Attractions are always changing. Worth the cost and beautiful. A leisurely walk and you can see almost everything in an hour.
