This zoo is far too small and their enclosures are so outdated. They need to consider moving many of their animals. It appear they just don't have the funding to keep them. Especially the large cats.

After visiting lots of other zoos, I realized how small and outdated our zoo is. It is a small little zoo for little kids, easy walk. I used to have a membership when my kids were younger.

This was my first visit to the Rochester zoo and I loved it. The price was reasonable, they had many exhibits, and there was plenty of air conditioned exhibits and shade to make it cool and comfortable. The only bad part of the experience was when I saw a 7 year old luck the catsup dispenser at the hot dog... More

This is a very nice zoo. It is smaller than larger city zoos but that also makes it very walkable for younger kids. The new lion area is very interesting and well done. We especially enjoys the tigers and the penguins.

My grandkids love the Seneca Park Zoo. It's a must stop when they visit Rochester. During our visit on 8/6 they enjoyed the hands on displays, the swimming sealions and wading in the creek at the playground.

The Seneca Park Zoo is not gigantic but it's still a delight. The variety of animals is great and enclosures are well kept and afford great viewing. The plant life at this zoo is every bit as impressive as any fine garden. Great areas for kids to play. Refreshment and gift shops are reasonably priced. Very, very family friendly and... More

The Good; Small so you can see the entire place in an hour or two. The Bad; This is a Zoo right? So how come every time I go the "cool" animals like the lions, tigers, monkeys are in hiding? Must be the times I go. The Ugly; The food tastes like it should be served to the residents not... More

Visiting the Seneca Park Zoo along the banks of the Genesee River is a great way to spend a summer morning in Rochester, NY. I haven't been since they expanded and renovated many of the animal enclosures. Elephants! Lions! Tigers! Polar bears! Penguins! and more! Friendly signage enhances the experience and makes you think about the environmental and conservation aspects... More
