Only Bronx River and Southern Blvd gates will be open early. If using subway, we suggest getting off at Pelham Parkway station and walking to the Bronx River gate entrance, or, if you get off at West Farms Square, then take the Bx9 bus (180 St at Boston Road – NW corner) to Southern Blvd zoo gate.
Last entry to the Dinosaur Safari path is at 9:55am. Members must be clear of the vehicle path and inside the Field Site activity area by 10:20am at the latest. Please note - The walking route from Birds of Prey to the Field Site is approximately 20 minutes.
There is a steep incline at the start of the path, and a steep downhill mid-way through the path. We can assist in manual wheelchairs getting through, and will have a limited number of ECVs available for loan, upon request. For guests wanting to use an ECV after 10:00am, the unit can be rented ($40).
No – just the Walk With Dinosaurs – this includes the Field Site which has souvenir and snack carts (use your Member discount for food and retail at the Field Site!) We ask Members to stay in the area of Fountain Circle and Astor Court/Sea Lion exhibit until the rest of the park opens at 10am.
Use the restrooms before you get to the Walk! On arrival to the park, be sure to stop at Eco-Restrooms (at Bronx River) Nearest are on Astor Court by Madagascar
Wear comfortable shoes. Approximately 15-20 minute walk, that leads to an interactive Field Site. Be comfortable and ready to explore
Have a sense of adventure! Our dinosaurs are life-size
Plan to arrive early. We know traffic can happen – we cannot change or extend the times for entry and arrival to the Walk, so please plan ahead. It can take 8-10 minutes to walk from the admissions area to the start of the Dinosaur Safari path. Guest that arrive to Dino after 9:55 will not be admitted to the walk.
