The zoo is a great family attraction. We have been there several times and each time you see something new and different. The animals are clean, their enclosures are clean. It is awesome to see such a wonderful zoo in upstate NY. I would have to say our favorite part is when you see the shows. They also spend a... More

My husband and I had another great visit to the Seneca Zoo. We visited around 11:00am and the animals were active, crowds were minimal, the weather was cool and the educational team at the zoo were helpful. The field trips that are there are scheduled accordingly to not crowd specific areas at once. The admission price is fair for the... More

We went on a rainy day & not so warm day,which meant there were not a lot of people there. A lot of the animals were not our due to the weather. It was a nice size... More

What an awesome zoo! The animal collection is super diverse and so clearly well-loved and taken care of. There is a strong educational message, and conservation and community involvement is well-represented, too. You definitely need to visit!

What a great place for families! We took our 18 month old yesterday and she had a blast. So much room to run around, very family friendly with changing tables in both the men's and women's restrooms. Plenty of snack bars and water fountains! For our little one it seemed like the perfect age for which she could really begin... More

The zoo is small, but much larger than I expected. The exhibits are fun and interactive (I especially liked the van in the lion exhibit). The animals were very active when we went. It was a cool day, so they were all out basking in the sun. It was a great family outing. My two girls (2 1/2 and 1)... More

While the zoo was smaller than others we have visited, we enjoyed seeing the animals and some of the exhibits were very nicely done.
