Great place to take everyone including the grandparents. Lots of animals and critters to see and nice place to enjoy a walk if you do not go in the zoo. Food is reasonable with friendly staff.

Better off driving to Buffalo which has a much larger and nicer zoo. The animals are rarely out and seem to die frequently. You can walk to whole zoo in an hour with kids and be done.

We went as an employee event for employees in the Rochester area. This year was great because all of the animals came out except the water animals like the sea lion I think. Love the zoo. Small enough for young kids.

My six year old granddaughter and I went to the zoo. The price was very good. I feel really bad for the animals because it was very hot and humid. Some of the enclosures seemed a little small. But then I am used to Wildlife...More

Slightly below average zoo. Had a nice time meandering and talking throughout the day - it was part of a halfway-meeting-place-weekend (between Boston and Detroit) reunion for the two of us. We did enjoy seeing a few good looking animals - but, also missed a...More

We went with a very young child, it is more suitable for children above 3, but all ages will enjoy this zoo. It is right size, not too big, the animals can be observed well. Plenty of educational opportunities. One can spend an enjoyable whole...More

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
