Last two times i went something was closed down. Disappointed that I could not tour part of it and still charged the same price.

We decided to come for a stroll. Two teenage boys in tow.mmmm thought we were asking for trouble, but the day was one we will remember . Feeding time for Polar bears was awesome. All in all a great morning out. Boys are asking find a zoo for our next trip!

The zoo has made huge improvements over the last few years. The polar bear exhihbit is currently under construction. Be sure to visit the new M&T Bank Rain forest Falls exhibit in the middle of the park.

Aside from the rain forest exhibit, don't go looking for animals in the zoo in the winter. There just aren't many. And the elephants are locked up behind bars in a huge building that is gloomy and sad looking. Maybe the zoo perks up during nice weather months, but it is a dreary place in the winter. Very disappointing.
