  • The kids do love going here but I feel sad for some of the animals. Especially the Orangutans. They need a much bigger space than they have. They always looks so sad. I hope they will do some renovati...  more »

  • This place was great! Small zoo as far as walking but big as far as what you get to see. Great up close views of all the animals. I was really impressed. Would go again for sure!!
  • I do not like zoos. But it is good for animals that have known nothing else. I gave it 3 stars because I have been to other zoos, ie. Buffalo Zoo and Cleveland Zoo, and our zoo is no comparison. The staff is friendly, though. And our zoo could use more natural settings for the animals.
  • Great little zoo, nicely laid out with lots of shade until you get to the African savanna section. All the animals appeared well cared for and the polar bear and sea lions were fun to watch.
  • I've lived here my whole life and I don't think I've ever been there and seen most of the animals out at one time. Today I went and all I was able to see were maybe 6 or 7 animals out of however many they have to see. It's honestly not worth the money, between the tickets and the stuff to eat for my son and the water I was out 60 buck by the end of the day for my two year old to look at a tiger, a monkey, an elephant and a hyena. It's cool that he saw them, but definitely not worth that much money. For the same level of fun if not more you can take the kids to the petting zoo for a dollar in Spencerport.
  • Very enjoyable zoo experience. Beautiful setting and some unique animals that aren't often seen
