  • Nice little zoo. Beautiful location. Animals look well cared for. Staff friendly and helpful. Understandably a lot of the shops were closed as not prime season

  • This Zoo is fantastic, beautiful, and full of love for the animals. Although small compared to others, it packs a big visual punch for its visitors. The exhibits are amazing and provide a real view into the domicile of the wildlife. The animals look happy, relaxed, and well taken care of in their environment. I enjoyed the natural lay of the park, and the well written passages that taught me about its residents. I highly recommend Seneca Park Zoo to all travelers passing through Rochester, NY.
  • I went with my daughter's class for their class field trip. It was tough during winter as many of the animals were inside, it was a windy and cold day but was still a fun experience. We were still able to see many animals and even had a little personal session for the kids to learn about a few of the animals with two of the zoo staff members. The summer is the best time to go as there are more animals out and about. I can't wait to take all my kids there again.
