The Central Park Zoo is located in Central Park in New York City. A redesign of the zoo in 1983–88, executed by the architectural firm of Kevin Roche, Dinkeloo abandoned the old-fashioned menagerie cages for more natural exhibits. The central feature of the original zoo, ranged round the sea lion pool, was retained and the pool redesigned. Trellised, vine-clad, glass-roofed pergolas link the three major exhibit areas—tropic, temperate and arctic— housed in discreet new buildings, of brick trimmed with granite, masked by vines. Now the Central Park Zoo is home to an indoor rainforest, a leafcutter ant colony, a chilled penguin house and polar bear pool. The Central Park Zoo houses breeding programs for some endangered species: tamarin monkeys, Wyoming toads, thick-billed parrots, and red pandas. Most of the large animals were rehoused in larger, more natural spaces at the Bronx Zoo. ...more on Wikipedia about "Central Park Zoo"
