Spend the day at the Queens Zoo. Located near Queens NY homes, it is the perfect place to play. Take the kids on a conservation quest. Pick up a map of designated areas which highlight stations in the zoo where activities stress the importance of conservation to animals and our world. Children love to conquer the Endangered Species Climbing Wall and Migration Playground on this Queens NY property. Bring a snack or lunch from home and enjoy at one of the designated picnic tables in the sunshine or shade. There are also vending machines scattered throughout to satisfy hungry tummies.
From bison to alligators to bears there are many animals to marvel at. Frolicking sea lions always get a laugh. Scheduled sea lion feeding times are at 11:15 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. and are open to the public. Birds of a feather flock together in the domed top aviary. Bird watchers will want to spend quite a bit of time searching out species originating from the Western Hemisphere. View the lynx and puma and see how their mannerisms compare to companion kitties playing back at Queens NY homes. Open seven days a week anytime is a great time to go to the Queens Zoo. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time online.
