The New York State Zoo @ Thompson Park


Last weekend, we spiced up a drizzly Sunday morning with a trip to the zoo at Thompson Park in Watertown. We met up with our good friend Allison and wandered through the many animal exhibits taking photos along the way. The Thompson Park Zoo features a butterfly house, an otter exhibit and even a nocturnal animal exhibit just to name a few attractions. The zoo cares for a perfect combination of indigenous species and exotic animals creating a wonderful, interactive, and most of all educational experience for animal enthusiasts of all ages. The staff was warm, welcoming and extremely friendly and knowledgable making what was a lovely visit into an extraordinary one. The zoo welcomes guests during their regularly scheduled hours and also hosts a number of community-based events throughout the year.
