They have done a lot in recent years to update the appearance of the zoo and to improve the habitats of many of the animals. Nice day with family!

Small zoo with lots to do, very kid friendly, lots of walking paths. Some of the animals were people shy, but was a great visit nonetheless.

We enjoyed our visit pleasant walking paths not many animals or attractions but over all nice. We enjoyed the few animals that were there to be seen and I would recommend for children. Overall, this zoo could use some more personnel to engage the visitors in tours and information on the animals, their habits and demonstrations, making it more educational... More

I've been to many zoos, and was quite happy with this smaller-sized zoo. It's clean, well-organized, and attractively laid out. From a rhino, to orangutan, to two beautiful elephants, the Seneca Park Zoo has great exhibits, interactive spots for the kiddos, and a great group of exotic animals. And like many zoos, I was glad to see a conscious effort... More

I was very happy with my visit. It wasn't too expensive, and there were mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians, birds... a great variety. Very educational too, and well designed. I liked how they had animal footprints in some sections of the sidewalk. They also treat their animals well by not overcrowding the exhibit so every lion, tiger, and elephant and plenty... More

Very clean. Lots of seating and washrooms throughout the park. Mature grounds with lots of shade. A good variety of animals. Friendly staff and volunteers at exhibits to answer questions. A great experience will return.

I love this zoo! It's just the right size. You can go through the zoo in about 2 hours. The sea lions and river otters were very active. Lots of fun activities for everyone to do. They have a bird show and many different buildings with animal enclosures in them. The staff are nice and answer any questions you may... More

We've always loved this zoo. And this year, they've finished the long-going renovations, creating a large, expanded area representing Africa. Bring extra shorts if coming with small kids, as there's a nice "stream" pool to play in partway in. And there is food, and while yes, it's always more expensive getting food out, it's not as bad as some places.... More
