“Something to do”

Rosamond Gifford Zoo
Ranked #1 of 71 things to do in Syracuse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I'm not sure I would make a special trip to go there but it is something to do. It's a bit on the small side but they are making improvements. Maybe its because we went on a very hot day, but we did a lot of walking without seeing many animals.

Surprising that a small, not overly prosperous city like Syracuse would have such a nice zoo.
Well-laid out, well maintained and enough variety that you can visit more than once.

This is one place that you should not miss if you are in the area. There are animals from almost every part of the world and are kept as close to their natural surroundings as possible.

Located on the west side of the city, the zoo can be a bit difficult to find but, the experience is well worth the effort. There are indoor and outdoor exhibits and it is easy to navigate from one to another. The animal exhibits have reasonable space and the elephants exercise and perform on a scheduled basis. It is not the largest zoo, but the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Park in the upper lot and get a nice view of the city.

This zoo is great, we go 2-4 times a year. Open in winter, which is great too! Tons of renovations were ongoing summer 2013, so summer 2014 should have some nice improvements!
