Central Park Zoo

Have a wild time in the heart of New York City, mere steps from Fifth Avenue and the picturesque Manhattan skyline.

Dive in to visit with four species of penguins, or imagine scaling the highest peaks to encounter snow leopards of the Himalayas. If you want to follow your cold with something a little warmer, explore the Tropic Zone where free-flying birds, leaping lemurs and a wide variety of rainforest animals fill the canopy with life.

The Temperate Territory is full of charmers from Asia, like red pandas and snow monkeys. Down the path, the Tisch Children’s Zoo is home to more domestic animals like goats, sheep and alpaca. But everyone loves to give these animals a friendly pat.
