We were unsure of what we'd find when we pulled up to this zoo. It looked small, but seemed to have a diversity of animals. We were pleasantly surprised. The docents were friendly, and really seemed to enjoy talking to us about the animals, as...More

Great place to take everyone including the grandparents. Lots of animals and critters to see and nice place to enjoy a walk if you do not go in the zoo. Food is reasonable with friendly staff.

Perhaps it is my personal bias, but I felt really sorry for most of the animals here, especially the large animals such as the elephants, lions, snow leopard, rhinoceros, hyenas, wolves, baboons, who has such limited environments. It was a very hot day, and the...More

Better off driving to Buffalo which has a much larger and nicer zoo. The animals are rarely out and seem to die frequently. You can walk to whole zoo in an hour with kids and be done.

We went as an employee event for employees in the Rochester area. This year was great because all of the animals came out except the water animals like the sea lion I think. Love the zoo. Small enough for young kids.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
