  • We took our 5 year old grandson. Reasonable admission rate. Plenty of animals to see, had a great time.

  • Didn't go to the zoo itself, went to the park. I didn't realize there was a park there. For me it was nice and clean a nice unknown park

  • I went with my daughter's class for their class field trip. It was tough during winter as many of the animals were inside, it was a windy and cold day but was still a fun experience. We were still able to see many animals and even had a little personal session for the kids to learn about a few of the animals with two of the zoo staff members. The summer is the best time to go as there are more animals out and about. I can't wait to take all my kids there again.
  • The Seneca Park Zoo is always expanding and creating better habitats for the animals. The park has lions and elephants and giraffes. I could spend hours watching them. Not only is the zoo amazing but behind the zoo is a wonderful park. In the summer a pair of swans makes the pond in the park their home. They raise chicks every year. There are geese and ducks as well. It is a great place to walk and enjoy nature.
