Official description from Central Park Zoo:
Spring has sprung! Shed those winter layers and come take a stroll through the Central Park Zoo. Join our zookeepers as they feed sea lions, penguins, and harbor seals during daily enrichment sessions. Say hello to our mini-Nubian goats and other barnyard creatures at the Tisch Children’s Zoo. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Central Park Zoo is a small 5-acre (2.0 ha) zoo located in Central Park in New York City. It is part of an integrated system of four zoos and the New York Aquarium managed by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). The zoo began in the 1860s as a menagerie, making it the first official zoo to open in New York. The zoo was modified in 1934, with the addition of many new buildings ranged in a quadrangle around the sea lion pool. (The zoo from this era has been commonly known as the "1934 Zoo" or "Robert Moses Zoo".) Finally, the zoo was renovated in the mid 1980s and reopened in 1988, replacing the old-fashioned cages with naturalistic environments.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Central Park Zoo homepage or our exhibitions list for N.Y.-wide exhibits.
