1 ) Enjoy a little bit of nature right in the middle of the Concrete Jungle. The Central Park Zoo was originally opened in 1890 as a menagerie and was the first of its kind in NYC. It has since been renovated to accommodate the animals as much as possible. Whether you’d like to spend some time watching the penguins and puffers swim in the aquarium or petting the small animals in the Children’s Zoo, this is the spot for an afternoon in the park! Tickets start at $12 per person. The zoo is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day. After exploring the zoo, you can rent a bike for you and your kids, using a kids seat, or even a tagalong attachment. Spend the day biking around Central Park exploring all it has to offer.
During your tour, you can thrill your little ones with stops by the Central Park Carousel and the Bethesda Fountain near the Loeb Central Park Boathouse. At the Conservatory Water be sure to sail model sailboats. Visit the Alice in Wonderland Statue or Balto Statue and of course, enjoy a picnic on the great lawn.
