Is it all about size? When it comes how big your local zoo is, the answers to many is yes. But recently I went to one of the smaller zoo’s you will find but don’t let it’s small size fool you, the Queens Zoo at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is well worth your time.
This small zoo located in the borough of Queens in New York City, is not as large as its sister park in The Bronx but that doesn’t mean you won’t have a good time. Sure it took me about an hour to see all the animals, but then on the cold day that I went I only saw 4 other people visiting the zoo.
Originally opened as the Flushing Meadows Zoo on October 26, 1968, it changed it’s name to the Queens Zoo in 1992. It was the first zoo designed from the start as a careless zoo. Now there isn’t much history or fun facts about the zoo, but let’s enjoy what are the stars of the show, the animals
Like I said, this is a small zoo but you get more time with the animals if you go on a day like I went. I did’y feel rushed or crowded by throngs of people. I got to look and take in the animals and get to really enjoy them.
