They try hard to improve the quality of the Zoo. Somehow each time I come back to visit I feel so bad for the animals. Many areas are not appropriate for the animals and it is not well maintained.

I love visiting here with family. There are tons of great exhibits, the zoo is clean and and the price is fair. The staff is knowledgeable and once a month they have a "Zoo Brew" for craft beer drinkers.

This is a smallish zoo that one can enjoy in a half day. The animal enclosures are a mix of old and new styles. One of their old main buildings is slated for renewal soon. There was a nice selection of animals. We were there in the morning, and were lucky to see a fair number of animals moving about... More

I've always really like Seneca Park Zoo, even though it's a pretty small zoo. I gave this zoo a 4/5 because I prefer quieter trips, and this place is usually pretty packed with children on field trips, large groups of families and children, or special events for children happening. While this type of atmosphere obviously is desirable for many people,... More

Small but ok. Definitely needs updating. I have been to several zoos and this one is last on my list.

Nice smaller zoo. We spent two hours and was able to see everything. The price was reasonable and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. Check out the feeding of the seals if you can.

My 3 year old nephew from Ohio was in town for the weekend. He loves animals so we decided to take him to the Seneca Park Zoo. We had so much. Even the adults. The animals were clean and easy to see. They all looked well cared for. There was a playground area for the children to get rid of... More

I pick a relatively cool day for this zoo because of all the blacktop - it gets hot. Nice zoo, you can print tickets ahead. Snacks and bottled water are available throughout the zoo - convenient and at convenience prices (over $3 for venting machine ice cream sandwich.) Don't skip going into the building near the elephants, there are more... More

An afternoon at the zoo (as an adult) reminds me when I was a youngster and my parents used to take me to the Seneca Park Zoo. Nice zoo, well kept, new exhibits. A must see if you live in the city and have never been.

I was going too rate this Zoo a Three but I loved seeing the Elephants getting scrubbed and cleaned. Than they gave him a whole watermelon that he took down in one gulp. The picture I took of the elephants aren't there enclosures, they have a whole other area. The zoo is small I'd say it will take you 3... More
