The Queens Zoo is located in Corona, Queens New York. It is a Wildlife Conversation Society Park. It is a small zoo that goes around in a circle. You are able to see all the animals this way. There is also a petting zoo there as well. They are open until 5:30 pm on weekends from 10 am. These are the summer hours from April to November. During the week, they are open from 10am until 5pm. They are also open during the winter months from November until March. The hours are from 10am until 4:30pm.
Yesterday we went with our son and nieces for a nice afternoon at the zoo. It was a prefect day. The kids got to see many animals and spend time together.
Some of the animals that you can see at the Queens Zoo are as follows: lots of different ducks at the waterfowl marsh (where you can feed the ducks for 25 cents), alligator, sand hill crane, bald eagle, lynx, puma, Roosevelt elk, owl, coyote, sea lion, bison, pronghorn antelope, push, chacoan peccary, thick-billed parrot and an Andean bear. There is also an aviary with many different kinds of birds. That’s a lot of animals for a small zoo.
The petting zoo has a lot of domestic animals. The kids are able to feed them for 25 cents as well. Some of the domestic animals are pigs, goats, wheels, llama, horse, donkey, and chickens. The kids had a great time feeding the animals and we were there for a while feeding them.
If you are looking for a quick place to visit, definitely go and check out the Queens Zoo. It makes for a wonderful afternoon with your children. Happy traveling.
