In Syracuse this small zoo is a nice afternoon for children. It is well maintained. Often there are special demonstrations & special events at night I believe as well.

This is a small zoo, but perfect for small children, and for people who just like to animal watch. The zoo is clean, easy to navigate, and exhibits are well done. Attractions we always enjoy are the elephants, wolves, and monkeys.
