Zoo is just right size for little ones to handle. Nicely laid out with good room to run around. Sea lions are so much fun!

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

The zoo is fun when you go there with children. We had a great time looking at the animals, and resting in the playground. It's a small zoo, but it is worth visiting and having fun.

Very pleasant atmosphere, nice new features, wonderful entertainment for the family for hours. It closes vey early, especially in the winter (3pm) so get there soon. Membership has great reciprocity program at zoos where single visit would cost more than total membership.

I am a native of Rochester and had not seen the zoo in 5 years since being redesigned. The zoo is very kid friendly with play areas, an air conditioned building with educational activities, especially in case you need a break from heat/rain, a small educational exhibit on recycling and various animal areas. The animal areas, while attempting to recreate... More

This is a small zoo. It was a good choice for a school field trip as it was small enough to see all of the exhibits in a short amount of time. My son and his friends enjoyed the safari bus near the lion exhibit. I liked how close you could see the lions. The otter, sea lion and polar... More

We took our two year old son who had lots of fun looking at all the animals. He loved the giant tortoise and rhino. The animals look cared for and grounds were clean. Lots of space to eat wether you bring your own food or buy on premises. We spent about 3 hours there and saw everything.
