The Staten Island Zoo is an 8 acre suburban zoo in the West New Brighton section of Staten Island. The zoo is open all year, with the exception of Christmas, New Year's Day and Thanksgiving. The Staten Island Zoo (also known as Barrett Park) can be traced back to three Staten Island War Heroes; Major Clarence Barrett, Colonel Richard Penn Smith, and Colonel Edward Harden.
