I love this zoo. We travel from Syracuse to Rochester at least once or twice a year to go to this zoo. It has a nice little playground area with a bridge over a small creek. All 3 of my children love this little play area. They also have a nice variety of animals and parts of the zoo are "indoors" which is nice for rainy/ colder days.

This zoo has come a long way. While there are not as many animals as the larger zoos are able to maintain, it does give ample space to those it maintains. The animals are also well cared for, which sometimes goes unrecognized. Taking a trip to the zoo is a nice afternoon activity, including a gentle walk. (For those with limited mobility or other health impairments, be warned about the steep hills toward the elephant enclosure. The walk is not always level.)

Its a good zoo about to get better. We love the up-close view of the otters and polar bears. I can't wait for the new Elephant area to open.

Loved it here. It was a snowy day in February that we went and there were very few people there, but that made it that much better. The animals were just amazing. Great place, will be going back for sure.

This is a beautiful park for walking and picture taking. There are many walking paths that go along the gorge. Just beautiful
