This zoo is on the right track. Lots of positive changes and looks like more to come. Great play area for smaller children. Plenty of staff and docents on grounds to give information on the animal collection. Nice selection of exhibits and well kept grounds/exhibit areas.

We took our grandchildren for a family outing and were disappointed that we saw practically no animals. They were either hiding or in their houses. No activity at all. We did see the tiger pacing and the elephants. The addition was a nice expansion to the zoo but not enough to bring me back. Sorry.

Several of us artists were invited to come paint or sketch at the zoo, and we were made very welcome by the friendly staff. We even had a pre-trip walk through to help us decide where to set up. I thoroughly enjoyed sketching the animals, but even more watching the children enjoying their zoo experience. I've been visiting the Seneca... More

This zoo seems to be kept very clean and neat. The animals look well cared for and the workers could answer any question you had about the animals. I definitely will be returning this summer for another visit there.

Great zoo for a small area. Always making improvements to make it better. Lots of activities for families and Zoo Brew for 21+ is fun.

My family visited Seneca Park Zoo on a Sunday. There were quite a few people but it did not feel crowded. The layout can be a little confusing, so make sure you get a map upon admission. It's a wonderful facility. There is a good variety of animals and they seem to be well cared for. Lots of hands-on stuff... More

Host Zoo Brew on one Friday every month. Great time for 21+ older crowd. Drinks & animals = great time. Prices are decent and never really overly crowded even on busy days. Food is kinda pricey though
