Worth the price. Lots to see and super children's facts with fun and learning. Restrooms clean and variety of places to sit and rest if you need to. Overall, a super Zoo with excellent sponsors.

We took our 7year old grandson to this little zoo when we came to Rochester, NY to attend a family funeral. The zoo was small enough to see it all in one hour and a half.

This zoo has grown many times over since my first visit. They always try to include a very tactile experience. They have great events as well! Great place to take kids too!

Not the largest zoo, but new additions to the elephant's area and an African village make it a wonderful walk. Good variety of inside and outside displays and a small park like area for the kids to play in. Perfect place for families. Many educational opportunities are offered too. Excellent for 1/2 day or more.

The zoo is an excellent small facility for what it is, however I have not had great encounters with hospitality staff, especially when in a group setting, very unaccommodating.

A Rochester classic . Not too big, not too small, just right. An excellent selection of animals that appear to be happy and well taken care of. Polar bears, penguins, lions, tigers, elephants, rhinos,baboons,otters.The new step into Africa exhibit is nicely done.

It could have been the heat or the fact that we went in the late afternoon/early evening. A lot of the animals were done for the day and resting in their shelters so we couldn't see them.

It's not as big as some major city zoo's but they do an amazing job creating a natural and clean habitat for the animals.

Very small but it's perfect for young children who don't need many exhibits to enjoy a zoo. It's easy to walk in an hour. Parking is easy and the zoo is inexpensive to attend. Good time.
