The Central Park Zoo is located on the East Side between 63rd and 66th Streets at 830 5th Avenue. Formally known as the Wildlife Conservation Society's Central Park Zoo, this tourist destination houses over 130 different animals: from Polar bears to arachnids. The Zoo is carefully designed to simulate the natural habitats of the various animals that reside there. A walk around the Zoo’s five-plus acres will take you through a variety of habitats, all carefully designed to recreate the natural environment of the animals they house.
The Polar Circle is one of the most recognizable areas in the Zoo and houses the Polar Bears: Ida and Gus. Another popular area is the Rain Forest, where a beautiful collection of tropical birds reside. Other animals include lemur, various apes and monkeys, as well as some California Sea Lions. Included in the admission cost of the main Central Park Zoo the Tisch Childrens Zoo is a popular attraction with children and allows them to interact closely with various zoo and farmyard animals.
