What it lacks in physical size, Seneca Park Zoo makes up for in exhibits, activities, and special programs. Encompassing a little over 6 hectares (15 acres), the zoo houses over 90 different species including polar bears, African penguins, sea lions, sandhill cranes, snowy owls, lions, baboons, and elephants. The zoo strives to educate and entertain the public; its interactive lessons about animal and resource conservation are designed to attract visitors of all ages. Be sure to visit the area dedicated to simple ways you can help protect the animals living in your own backyard.

  • This was a fun place to visit for us while we were in the area. The weather was on the cool side but we saw just about all of the animals there were to see. A well maintained zoo and the staff were gr...  read more »

  • This zoo is perfect for everyone: families with young/teen children, couples, or even solo. They also offer many children's classes and animal meet and greets. It is on the smaller side but it's a mus...  read more »
  • Great zoo- small enough to for the kids to walk without getting overtired but large enough to make a day out of it. Staff is the best- there are many employees/volunteers stationed by animal exhibits to answer questions for the kids. Daily animal interactions (feedings, etc) and other great programs online. A local favorite! And the baby orangutan and baby sea lion are finally out! They're adorable.
  • 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.
  • Always a great time for the kids. Smaller, older zoo but plenty to do and see. Very friendly staff- many volunteers as well who share stories about the animals and answer questions for the kids. Great food options.
  • I love the zoo and think it is great,I love the way the animals come out and interact with people, the shows are funny and i love seeing other kids such as me come out and play with such excitement. The only thing is the sea otters do not come out as often but the owners can't do anything to help with that. If you have kids this is a great place to take you friends and family. I would love to have the owner comment on this to show that you really care about your customers. THANK YOU very much and please comment on the post to the owners.
  • Our 2 year old loved our visit. I used to go here when I was much younger and the changes they have made over the years are fantastic. Fun for the entire family.
