The Prospect Park Zoo is a 12-acre zoo located along Flatbush Avenue on the eastern edge of Prospect Park, part of the Park’s Children’s Corner. Opened in 1935, this zoo cares for more than 400 animals, including sea lions, baboons, and their famous red pandas. Admission is only $8 for adults and $5 for kids, but the zoo is part of the Wildlife Conservation Society, so membership includes admission to the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, Queens Zoo, and the New York Aquarium at Coney Island. This is a great place for kids and a worth a visit after our Prospect Park Tours.
