This zoo is perfect for everyone: families with young/teen children, couples, or even solo. They also offer many children's classes and animal meet and greets. It is on the smaller side but it's a must-visit in Rochester.

I LOVE this zoo. It's been around for a very long time and was always nice as a kid to hear stories about my parents visiting when they were young. The zoo is not terribly big, but they do have some show-stopping animals like elephants, lions, tigers, orangutans, and polar bears. HELPFUL HINT: The earlier you go in the day,... More

This was a nice zoo where you can see most everything in few hours! The exhibits were nice and there are several little playground areas for kids to play. We had fun and saw everything in 3 hours. Also they did have some fresh healthy food options.

Visited the Zoo with kids and grandkids. What a surprise at what has been done since our last visit several years ago. More beautiful animals have been added and all the family friendly locations to sit and relax out of the sun. More food stops added with nice selection of items. A little pricey but that is expected at this... More

Been going to Seneca Park Zoo since I was kid, it gets better every year. Best value is the season pass for the family, especially for 2 or more kids. Many attractions to see...elephants, lion safari, polar bears and sea lions, Rhinos, tigers, and much more. Even a playground area for the kids is a bonus!!

So lucky to have this zoo in our back yard. A great variety of animals in a spacious clean environment. Lots of opportunities for kids to learn along the way. My girls love the vet center. Fun place to spend as much or as little time as you would like.

We visited this zoo on a Wednesday, not crowded at all. Entrance fee is $12 for adults, not too bad, especially since I am familiar with the San Diego Zoo which is expensive. The exhibits are kept clean and zoo grounds are clean as well. Easy to navigate. We really enjoyed watching one of the elephants get a shower, was... More

It's a nice and clean zoo, not too big and not too small. You can cover entire zoo in 3 hrs. Lots of cool animal exhibits. Our favorite is sea lion exhibit. They also have couple of shows in the summer, don't miss the sea lion show.

Pretty great small zoo for the family to walk through. Prices aren't horrible to get in, eat, and grab a small stuffed animal. My youngest still carries around her sea lion stuffed animal that we got her after the sea lion "show" (think information not tricks).
