Had a great time at the zoo, the grandkids really enjoyed seeing the animals. Very easy walk around the trail to see all the animals.

Visited mid-week while in town for two days. A small well kept zoo with elephants, bison, a tiger and a larger bird collection. There were quite a few animatronic dinosaurs throughout the zoo as well. The place was very popular with families.

Had such a great day at this zoo! It's not enormous but it's really good and it's a great layout - the zoo has some really great animals here and I would definitely return when I come to Syracuse!

This zoo has really improved since I was a kid. The elephants are the highlight of the zoo for me. Last time I was there, the zookeepers did a wonderful demonstration -- super informative. I also really like the indoor exhibits.

We recently visited the zoo in Syracuse. It’s free parking. Admission was $5 for kids over two years old and $9 for adults. There’s a great indoor area to start off with a variety of fish, snakes, insects and other nocturnal animals. The outdoor part...More

We took our granddaughter as a surprise. She was thrilled! The 101 Day Dinosaur Exhibit was wonderful, stratigically placed throughout the park - quite a few surprises and everyone on the walkways were thrilled. Several areas along the walk had spraying water, and that was...More

Although founded more than 100 years ago, the Zoo was expanded, redeveloped and re-opened in 1986. It now covers 43 acres [almost 2 million ft 2]. The variety of animals- including baby Pandas, Penguins, Snow Leopards and Asian (smaller) Elephants will be sure the enthral...More
