The Seneca Park Zoo is very family friendly and fun for the younger kids too. The sea lions and penguins are my kids' favorite attraction. The last Friday of the month they have 'Zoobrew' aimed at adults over 21 to come enjoy the animals and live bands, entertainment and usually nice weather during the season.

They are planning some updates to the zoo and I went to their meeting with the public so we could give them some input. The main building is very old and needs updating or they will lose their accreditation. They have a 10 year plan to do these updates. The main building has birds (including spoonbills, ibis, etc), rhinos (which... More

This is a small zoo but that actually makes it great. You can spend a few hours here, and go home with children who are not tired and cranky. We always manage to see something exciting or unexpected.

The seneca park zoo is amazing for a small zoo. The zoo is clean, up to date and the variety of animals is great. They keep adding and building each year.

I went with my friends to the Seneca park zoo in the middle of the week in May. The weather was on the chillier side, but that resulted in all the animals being outside. The zoo is on the smaller side, but still takes a few hours to get through if you visit each exhibit. They have a few exhibits... More

I needed to pass the time while my husband was conducting business in nearby Webster. While I am ambivalent concerning zoos, I like to visit one whenever possible for the opportunity to see rare animals. Although this is by no means a world class zoo, it is pleasantly sited within a Frederick Law Olmsted park and the grounds are pleasant.... More

As zoo's go this is a sad one. I always hate going to zoo's, and the only reason I go to this one is for charity events that are held on the property. The park is loud and not as clean as I would hope. The living quarters for all the animals are small and for the most part unkempt.... More

My wife and I learned that the zoo has two new elephants and we asked our two grandsons, since they were spending the night, if they wanted to go to the zoo and see the animals. With a resounding, yes, off we went for our outing. The zoo IS a wonderful place to visit. All of us had a great... More

It's not too terribly big but big enough and the management seems to try as much as possible to give the animals habitats instead of pens... We saw a bird show that was entertaining and had audience participation and the playground and natural water play areas are awesome. The food is overpriced and only soso but typical I guess...

This zoo is smaller than some but wonderful. They have been doing upgrades for many years now and have doubled in size.
