Queens Zoo -- Sea Lion Pool


This piece of paradise is locate in the Queens Zoo. This is specifically the sea lion pool.


The Queens Zoo size is rather deceiving. While it is located in Corona Park — one of the largest parks in NYC. The Zoo is rather small. It is also rather boring. We have never been to the Queens Zoo. But it was a nice NYC day so we decided to make the trek.

Now while we were disappointed in the overall experience there were some nice attractions:

  • the sea lion pool
  • the bird cage

Yep, that was it.

But we did no let that ruin our day. We saw some of the parks employees heading over to the sea lion pool. They had buckets of food so we hoped it was lunchtime for the sea lions. It was :-)

But thankfully, before the feeding began I was able to take a few photos. These sea lions live rather well :-)
