Prospect Park Zoo

Prospect Park Zoo
450 Flatbush Avenue

Established in the late 1800s with a small menagerie of animals, this eleven-acre habitat officially became the Prospect Park Zoo when it opened to the public in 1935, and has grown to be home to almost 400 animals comprising 82 species.

Guests can meander down the Discovery Trail and wander among wallabies and kangaroos or stroll over to the breathtaking rotunda to meet our mascots – a troop of Hamadryas baboons in a habitat designed to get you up close and personal. While being entertained by the engaging zoo residents, you and your guests will appreciate the warm and inviting architecture which flows in a half circle around the centerpiece of the sea lion pool.
