This beautiful little zoo is really a pleasure. We really enjoyed watching animals who seemed contented and healthy romp & play.

Seneca Park Zoo isn't a large zoo but has a lot to offer with the right amount of space. If you are looking for something to do for a few hours or less, this is the place! It is amazing all that has been done to the zoo in the past few years with all the additions. From the lions... More

I love this place so much, I joined as a member!! They are open almost every day of the year! I hope you don't think zoos are just for children, because while they are certainly fun and entertaining, as well as educational (SSHH- don't tell) for kids, all ages will enjoy themselves here. Seneca Park Zoo offers lots of educational... More

The Seneca Park Zoo has a wonderful combination of indoor and outdoor exhibits. They have many different types of animals, with a nice variety of hands-on learning opportunities for kids. We had a great time with our grandchildren.

Very small more hands on than animals. The snake area is not vented very well space is small for a lot of people it becomes very hot and stuffy. The polar bears are the main attraction and a nice one it is but again the viewing area gets crowded. It seen there are mazes to make it seem big but... More

Many animals, toddler and kids play area,food area, buildings with water exhibits. Recent expansions to the zoo added spray water, running while walking. Here and there along the paths they have experiments about the environment or animals. My grandson really enjoyed them.

Lots of interesting and well cared for animals. Very educational for children and entertaining as an event for a couple, the family or a group. There are special events thru the year such as Zoo Fest with live music, food and drinks. You have got to be mindful of mosquitos if it rained recently as there are many spots where... More

Perfect size to take little kids, very manageable, not overwhelming going by myself with 2 little kids. Not so big that they get tired and irritable. You can see and enjoy the whole zoo and be back home by afternoon naptime. Took the grandparents on our last trip and they enjoyed it as much as the kids.
