All Weekend 
Introducing Nature Trek, a brand new Total Experience exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. Climb and crawl to new heights or explore the environment around you for a fresh perspective on nature. Get a giraffe’s-eye view at the mother of all tree houses. They’ve built a village in the trees perfect for kids, or kids at heart, to explore. Cross wavy bridges and crawl through elevated tunnels. Take in the view from a human-sized bird nest and balance on wiggly surfaces. The bridges, walkways, and towers are safe, fully netted, and offer accessible routes. Which means you can explore the world from a fresh point of view. See you up there!Mexican Family Dance, Esplanade Plaza, Battery Park City
