Visiting the Sunset Zoo was a very enjoyable experience for my family something I would recommend to anybody looking for something fun to do in Manhattan. We have membership at the Sedgwick Co Zoo (Wichita), so Sunset give us a 50% discount. Even without that it's an affordable place. There is a good diversity of animals. The cats: tigers, leopard, cheetahs, and bobcats were a big hit with our kids. The animals have good size, extremely clean enclosures and there were a few walk-through enclosures where you can get up close - such as the Emus. Uniquely, the zoo has paved trails rather than wide roads. The shady trails with beautiful vistas (especially from the Asian area) give the impression of being on a hike. We chatted awhile with a keeper and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. This zoo really impressed!

Awesome place to take your family. The employees are friendly and the animals are amazing. The jaguar was my favorite!

Such a great city zoo. It is cheap to get in and they have some very amazing animals to see. All the animals are very well taken care. Love it there. Should be on everyone's Manhattan bucket list.

A great zoo for a smaller town. Beautifully landscaped with plenty of animals. Warning - it is on a steep hill so walking uphill is expected

Very nice zoo for its size, friendly staff and most active animals I have ever seen they get very close up and personal so it is nice for us photographers kind of upset I did not bring my good camera for the experience. I visited late October so many of the exhibits were closed due to weather and a large portion was closed due to unsafe steep ramps but for 5$ an adult I would definitely go back after renovations or during the warmer months.
