See gorillas, polar bears, reptiles, sea lions, and rare Indian rhinos at The Buffalo Zoo, the third-oldest of its kind in the United States. Walk through the rainforest section to see poison arrow frogs and vultures. Touch the turtles, chinchilla, and other animals featured in the interactive children’s zoo. Ride the carousel or the Kangaroo Hop, a children-friendly bungee trampoline, and take in one of the seasonal shows. Parking is available at the zoo for a fee.

Small zoo, but well planned, with interesting displays. Some areas closed off for renovations. Worth a visit, specially with children.

Not bad not all exhibits accessible at the moment.
Our family loves the Buffalo Zoo, we have enjoyed watching so many of the Animals grow in our 10 years visiting this zoo. Luna is our families favorite but the new baby rhino is a close second. See you all soon.
