The Long Island Game Farm was founded in 1970 by Stanley and Diane Novak and is located on 25 acres of land off exit 70 on the Long Island Expressway in Manorville, New York. Featuring hundreds of animals, the Wildlife Park has grown over the years and has served as a frequent destination for school children that have grown up on Long Island. Each year, thousands of guests visit the park.
The Long Island Game Farm Wildlife and Children's Zoo features hundreds of animals, including an 18-foot giraffe, red kangaroos, kinkajous, cougars, Barbados sheep, peacocks, and the only lemurs born and bred on Long Island. Our animal collections include both exotic and indigenous breeds. We have various breeds of monkeys, buffalo, colorful parrots, zebra, aoudads, camels, ostrich, alligator, and much more.
Experience the thrill of discovery as you explore nature trails that lead to places like "Bambiland," "The Nursery," and "Old MacDonald's Farmyard."
The Long Island Game Farm also has many interactive areas where guests can touch and, unlike most zoos, actually feed the animals!
"Please Touch" is the motto in our petting zoo areas where you can pet, cuddle, and bottle feed the baby animals. "Old MacDonald's Farmyard," for example, provides a true barnyard experience where pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, and ponies are all within arms reach.
Children can also enjoy one of our carnival-style rides such as the Spinning Teacups, Rio Grande Mini Train or the Antique Carousel. If that's not enough, we offer pony rides as well. Our daily shows and animal activities will round out your day.
