This is a wonderful zoo for all ages. Been going since I was little, and still get a thrill seeing all the different animals and watching the expressions on children.

I love the Seneca park zoo. We'll be buying a membership for the season for the first time this year. It's a great place to go and for such a small zoo packs a lot of punch. There are lots of little restaurants and attractions along with the animals.

It was a good place to visit upon leaving Rochester, heading back home. Good to hit for a few hours, not an all-day kind of place. The monkeys were especially fun to watch :)

I still prefer the Philadelphia zoo but this is a very good zoo. The animal exhibits allow for close viewing and there are children's activity centers scattered throughout the park. It's nice to have playground areas to allow children to play off extra energy.

This zoo has changed sooo much since I was younger. It has been probably 6 yrs since I have been there, but they're always updating the animals homes and the park. I always enjoyed watching the otters at the otter house and the elephants.

Great value for your money. Zoo is well kept and easy to maneuver. The African safari area is one of my favorites, and cannot be missed.

Had not been there in many years....but it is in great shape! The main building brought back old memories. The animals have great spaces and you can really get pretty close to the animals. The penguins are so cute and the lions are right up close if one happens to be on the bus! Food prices are fair. There are... More
