The Central Park Zoo is a great diversion for those looking to get away from the glare and blare of Manhattan. Nestled in Central Park, the zoo features the Tisch Children’s Zoo , which is perfect for the little adventurer who wants to get close to some furry friends. The Central Garden and Sea Lion Pool is a great place to enjoy some restful moments or to commune with the lively, featured acrobatic mammals. The Polar Circle includes an indoor bird colony of penguins and puffins and an outdoor pool environment that serves as home for the zoo’s polar bears. There’s a lot happening at the Central Park Zoo!
