This year, Long Island Game Farm - Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo celebrates its 44th season with its grand opening on March 23. The park will be open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the month of April. From May 1 to May 21, the Game Farm will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
From alligators to zebra and scores of animals in between, the Long Island Game Farm has many interactive areas where guests can touch and, unlike most zoos, actually feed the animals!
The first weekend at the Game Farm kicks off with “Nature Nick’s Animal Adventures.” Each show features 10 to 12 animals from all corners of the world, many of them rare and exotic. He has appeared on numerous TV shows, including “The Martha Stewart Show,” “The Wendy Williams Show,” “Petkeeping with Marc Morrone” and “Good Morning America.”
During the months of July and August, a week-long children’s camp — Camp Zoo — will return. Registration for Camp Zoo is currently underway, marking the beginning of its eighth year as a unique program that provides children with a hands-on educational experience with nature.

One of the best times of the year to visit the Game Farm is early spring, when many of the animals have given birth to newborns. The Game Farm is expecting the births of new animals.
