Doing our bit

Under the Southern Tier Zoological Society, Ross Park has undergone tremendous changes. What was once asphalt, concrete and steel bars is now winding wooded paths with naturalistic exhibits housing over 100 different species. A strong emphasis on conservation education has created an outreach program that serves over 20,000 people in New York and Pennsylvania..

Need a little extra help?

The Zoo provides free tram rides to the top of the Zoo for all guests who are unable or need help walking up our hills. Most areas of the Zoo are accessible to and can be enjoyed by visitors with disabilities..

Baby Facilities

Strollers are available for rental at the admissions booth. .

    What a nice place. While getting some exercise you get to peek in on some really cool animals. The prices were right, even had a nice gift shop for the kids. I have been to the big huge zoo's but this one is not so overwhelming. Will absolutely bring my family back. Maybe next time they will have some ice-cream! =)

    It's an older zoo, in fact one of the oldest in the country, so the facilities are somewhat dated. A few years ago the zoo was in decline, and lost its accreditation. The new management however have regained the accreditation, and are working hard to really improve. Every visit I've been, there's been improvement. It may not be as exciting as other large zoos, but there is a variety of animals, very low admission, and a friendly staff. Kids don't care if it's fancy, they will still appreciate the animals, and adults will appreciate the more intimate...Read More

    Ignore the low-star reviews, this is a fine zoo; and under new management it is working hard to regain its past luster. Only a few animals? You've got to be kidding! The Amur Tigers and Leopards are worth the entire admission fee. These are magnificent animals in open air cages that allow great viewing. There are also Spectacled Bears from Ecuador, penguins, otters, bald eagles, wolves, reindeer, mountain sheep, monkeys and other animals. The indoor aviary is also very nice, with a good selection of colorful and unique birds. This zoo is worth the...Read More

It's worth a visit!

UPDATE: Zoo on 0/24/2009 announced that they were re-accredited. Congrats to the new management for restoring the zoo to this elite and coveted status! Keep up the good work!
