Great zoo with lots to see. Watching the sea lions being fed was fun and interesting. There is a good mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits and many of the indoor exhibits allow strollers but some do require you to park outside. The carousel ride was fun for the kids too. Also: They do allow outside food and there is plenty of chill spots for a picnic in case you don't want to spend more money on food.
We took a group of young couples from our church and it was a nice time! Not as many animals as thought would see but it was a really warm day and good fellowship! Got 10% off when purchased online tickets, overall a great experience and will be returning again. I heard the zoo is free on Wednesday’s so definitely will come back for the freebies! Thank you Bronx Zoo!
