Many things have changed about the Children’s Zoo at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo since it first opened in 1941. At that time, the Children’s Zoo was designed around a storybook theme, with displays like Piglet’s House, the Tortoise and the Hare, and Noah’s Ark, shown here in 1948. But one thing that hasn’t changed at the Children’s Zoo over its long history? Kids are number one there! The Children’s Zoo has always been a special place for kids to learn about animals and their own relationship to wildlife.
In its 74th year, the Children’s Zoo has just been upgraded with exciting new species including a giant anteater and a two-toed sloth that are surrounded by innovative play experiences. The grand re-opening is May 30, 2015.
