“Zoo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Zoo is ok for half day trip. Lots of walking, but the monkeys, lion, and birds are close by. There is reasonable food near like burgers and fries and a nice store closets shop in on your way out .

This zoo is a charmer. Nice collection of animals and a dedicated and competent staff. The cafe has good food, too.

“Could Be Better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Rosamond Zoo is a staple of the Syracuse community. If you are coming to visit from out of town it is a good place to take kids, depending on the time of day. Often, the animals are sleeping when you visit. May want to call the zoo in advance to ask them the best time to see activity.

“Something to do”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I'm not sure I would make a special trip to go there but it is something to do. It's a bit on the small side but they are making improvements. Maybe its because we went on a very hot day, but we did a lot of walking without seeing many animals.

“Fun for everyone no matter their age”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a very nice attraction in Syracuse. It was redesigned to give the animals a better environment and they offer many special events throughout the year with some geared toward adults and others for family. They are creative and the zoo takes care of its animals which comforting to know.
