Dextor Cow

The Prospect Park Zoo's 12 acres are situated within the heart of Brooklyn and are part of Prospect Park's Children's Corner. Just steps from Flatbush Avenue, you can roam the lush gardens, marshes, and scrubland of Discovery Trail, visit domestic animals on the farm, or head inside to meet nocturnal critters and our troop of Hamadryas baboons.

Be sure to check the schedule of keeper chats, sea lion feedings and other activities happening each week.
