Prospect Park Zoo

450 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11225 | (800) 433-4149 | Website

Whether you’re making a day of Prospect Park, or just taking a quick trip to the zoo, our location in Brooklyn makes it a great destination for animal lovers. Escape the city as you explore the Discovery Trail encountering red panda, dingo, and a host of beautiful birds. Or visit some unique small cats — the Pallas’s cats (the original grumpy cats) and black-footed cats. And make sure to take in a sea lion feeding while you take a break for your own lunch. There’s always a way to connect with the natural world at the zoo.

The Wildlife Conservation Society’s network of five urban wildlife parks headquartered at Bronx Zoo have inspired and educated more than 400 million guests since first opening. We hope you’ll visit soon and experience it for yourself!
