An official Path Through History Site! The 32-acre Zoo New York in Watertown is the only zoo in the world dedicated to New York's wild animals and wild places with species that are, or at one time were, native to New York State.

Animals, including wolverines, black bears, eagles, mountain lions, Canada lynx, grey wolves, and more make their home at this Zoo. Open daily from May through the end of October.
