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.

Clearly some animals were being kept in a distressed state, particularly the polar bear. The whole zoo is pretty scruffy and not worth a second visit. This is not the way wild animals should be kept and displayed, it is 30 years out of date and our kids should not be shown animals in the state of confinement.

The Seneca Park zoo is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours with your family. It is relatively small and offers a very limited variety of animals. The newer Lion exhibit is very nice. It does seem that every time we go there are fewer and fewer animals. I know they participate in species survival programs that entail sending... More

What a nice day at the zoo We brought our grand daughter there for her first time. She loved it and we will do it again. The people were nice not a big crowd and a nice breeze.

We attended the Zoo Brew. Very much enjoyed wandering with beer in hand. The African area makes it easy to see the big cats up close. I would call this a good place for "date night" as it is a bit of an exotic adventure. Smells are not that bad; just tuck in close to your honey and enjoy their... More

We took our toddler grandchildren to visit this zoo. There are a lot of animals that were local to Rochester there (we can see turkey vultures in our back yard quite frequently). There are no giraffes, no zebras (which our grandchildren were hoping to see). The only thing the grandchildren liked was the lion area (there were several lions for... More

First, you have to realize that this is a small zoo. It's simply not going to compare to larger zoos. I did feel the admission price was a little on the high side, but parking was free. The only complaint I have is that a few of the enclosures seemed too small. The staff was friendly, and there were plenty... More

A small zoo that has evolved from cages to exhibits. With friendly staff at major exhibits "elephant", lion etc.". To provide detail on the animals I'm the exhibit as well as the overall species. Never crowded. Great value at $11.00. Join the zoo and use your pass at many other zoos on the east coast.
