The Buffalo Zoo is a fun day for families! The grounds are spotless and there is plenty of shady spots to sit and eat lunch or just take a break. The admission price is totally reasonable for a day of family fun. There is some construction going on because they are building a new polar exhibit which will open August 2015 but as long as you follow the map around the construction, the flow of the zoo is easy to follow. A few highlights include the new baby rhino "Monica" (which is totally adorable), the baby gorilla (also adorable), the new barn yard petting farm exhibit (hands on farming activities along with a very happy mule, giant pig, turkey, sheep and cow), the Wegmans Children's Playground (for children 4' and under - fantastic), the baby polar bears (which are not babies anymore but so entertaining) and the train ride and carousel ($2 per ride). There is also a cute "Dino Dig" dig site where kids can dig for dino bones and learn dino facts. We spent about 4 hours here with our 4 year old son and we enjoyed every minute. All in all, we think the Buffalo Zoo is an excellent family day and will definitely return!
