The Central Park Zoo’s exhibits are surrounded by the picturesque Manhattan skyline and the trails of New York’s most famous park. Just steps from Fifth Avenue, you can chill out with penguins and polar bears or warm up with our tropical rainforest critters. Meet big cats in the big city at our newest exhibit, the Allison Maher Stern Snow Leopard Exhibit.
Be sure to check the daily schedule of feedings and enrichment demonstrations happening at exhibits throughout the park.
