Recently visited during our stay in the area. For GPS users, use 220 memorial parkway to get to the main entrance. The admission fee was reasonable, $8. Because of Covid restrictions, some attractions inside the buildings were closed, for the safety of the animals. Since we, I believe , don't fully understand the potential transmission to animals, I understood this. The outdoor exhibits were great. We spent about 1 1/2 hrs walking around. They have a concession area for food, though we did not eat there (we just ate). The monkey there, "sings" to you and the lions (siblings) were wrestling and roaring, fun experience. The staff, I know are always busy caring for the animals, took time to talk with us about different animals, appreciated that. The woman at the entrance was very friendly and helpful.

A nice local zoo with a number of exhibits. We followed the path through the main part of the zoo and then visited the Children's Zoo. At a leisurely pace and with minimal reading of the provided information it should take an hour and a half give or take. Some of the primates were very vocal during our visit. A fun experience.

A good place to exercise the kids in a safe environment. We wore our masks and kept our distance from other families. There is plenty of space, so safety was not a concern. It takes us about 1.5 hours to make the complete loop. Each visit we learn something new. Kids are always keen to visit. And, with our membership we also get reduced price tickets at other zoos. Utica is very fortunate to have this well maintained zoo!

It’s a nice little zoo. I love watching the sea lions. The zoo does many things during the summer. They have the zoo brew and even sometimes have free days for the public.
