“Seneca park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

The wild life is very confined more than many zoos I have been to....they do seem well kept and areas well maintained....most of the pictures posted here are from Rosamond zoo in Syracuse not Seneca park!

“Nice but doesnt beat Buffalo Zoo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

This zoo is missing chimpanzees. The monkeys are stuck in little cages in the building, and they are all huddled together. I feel like the animals are not given as much space to roam here. The Buffalo zoo is a lot bigger, but this is great if you want a zoo close to home.

“Very good for its size”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

No, it's not the biggest zoo. But compared to our "home" zoo, Smithsonian's National Zoo, Seneca Park is a breeze to visit. They have a good selection of animals and the new African exhibit at the back of the zoo is well designed. For a zoo of this size to have so much -- from polar bears to lions (and other large cats) -- is impressive and worthy of support. We make it a point to visit Seneca Park during our annual visits to Rochester.

“Just OK”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Very small zoo, some of the exhibits have been upgraded, many need upgrading. It is located in an urban park, space to expand is a local issue. On the plus side the zoo hosts some fun events for the community. It also provides options for groups of kids from schools, agencies, camps but unfortunately the groups are often poorly supervised, especially in the small playground area.

If you have a small child and pick a day where the zoo is not full of unsupervised groups of kids it can be fun. It is easy to walk through, not too expensive. I would suggest bringing your own food, options at the zoo are minimal and there are few nearby places to eat.
