  • Not much too see or do couldnt see most animals the best part were the otters they we out playing. Staff was very welcoming just not the best place.
  • I went there and they only had like 4 animals and they weren't even active. I've never been such a small zoo before. I didn't even stay 30 mins. That's how quick it takes to look at all the animals. I understand that some animals can't stand the cold but it shouldn't be like that.
  • Love this small hometown zoo! Does not have monkeys or elephants but the people are friendly and the zoo does a lot for the kids.
  • I love this place so much!!! I've been going here ever since I was a year old and it never gets old. It's a great place to take the family for a day and hang outπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ I would definitely recommend going here!!
  • The displays were really nice and it was fun to see animals that either were native to NY or still live in NY. We were a little bummed that the bear and wolverine weren't out, but it may just be a seasonal thing. On that note come on the weekend in the winter. The animals are much more active in the winter than in the heat of the summer.
