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 become 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 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.

Our event specialists will help you plan an event where you and your guests will enjoy every moment of this unique and exotic affair!
