Some of the amenities at the Holtsville Park include: a triple pool complex; exercise-trail fitness course; nature preserve and ecology center, featuring Buffalo, Bobcats, Eagles; ecology exhibits and tours; free compost; greenhouses; picnic area. Zoo (free admission) is open from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., seven days a week. The zoo has the following winter hours: 9am - 3pm Monday - Friday and 9am - 4pm Saturday and Sunday.
