The zoo is a really nice size. Plenty to see and lots to do for kids (play areas, water to run through, activities) and the food-court serves burgers and hot dogs better than one would expect at a zoo. It is hilly, so the up and down walking makes for a leisurely stroll and while it is not too much... More

The Seneca Park Zoo is a small, very child friendly zoo. Unfortunately, since the zoo is small and doesn't have a large geographic reach, many of the more exotic animals you see at the larger zoos aren't in Rochester. But it's a great place to spend the day with younger kids.

Seneca Park Zoo is a compact attraction as zoos go. It is easy to get around and is great for small children. You can stroll through all the zoo in less than two hours if you like or you can take several hours. There are plenty of place for children to stop and play or older folks to sit in... More

Went to the Zoo with my children and their children for a day of fun..all the animals were out and full of fun...we all had such a good time..the food was a bit high priced so bringing our lunch was the affordable choice for us..will definitely go back again and again

Not a fan of zoos in generally, I grudgingly took my children to the zoo many years ago when they were younger only to find sleeping, hiding or otherwise invisible animals and too many people. It had been a decade since I had been to the zoo when I attended Zoo Brew with my (now adult) family. What a difference!!... More

I love the zoo, they always have something different going on. I went on Mother's day weekend and they had a momma and baby orangutan there visiting from another zoo. The kids were able to buy sunflowers and give them to the animals. The kids really enjoyed it!

This is an older zoo with limited collection of animals. Nothing particularly exotic. Some of the displays could use upgrading, but nothing is awful. This is a great place to take younger children. It can easily be done in two hours, and does not cover a lot of territory

They had a weekend were the kids could dress up and parents in their costume's. We went from station to station and the kids collected clues to a fun maze they went through. They loved it and they got candy at the end. What a great family weekend for them.
