Seneca Park Zoo Rochester
Where are we going today?
Explore one of Greater Rochester’s most popular family attractions. The Seneca Park Zoo is nestled within 15.5 acres along the Genesee River and a stroll along our tree-lined pathways feels like a walk in your favorite park. But with beasties!
The newly renovated Penguin Exhibit features a remodeled pool, wider beach and an island keepers can stand on while feeding the birds. These impressive upgrades round out your experience at Rocky Coasts, which is also home to our polar bears and sea lions.
Don’t let the little ones leave before crawling through a tunnel for an up-close-and-personal look at our beautiful cougar. Complete your experience by visiting with New York State’s only Bornean orangutans and white rhinoceroses. And, as always, be sure to say hello to our meerkats, snow leopards and new Mexican wolves.

Small but nice zoo. The animals all seem well cared for, and the educational shows that I've seen have all been good (and sometimes quite funny).

Lovely small Zoo knows it's limits and therefore doesn't crowd as many animals as it can but gives them space to roam Kid love coming here!

Great little zoo for young children. You can see everything in 2-3 hours and they love it.

Great place to bring the kids. Little small but still at least 2 hours of enjoyment. It's nice to have a place local. Season passes are worth it if you've got kids under five. Much older and they'll be bored after a couple trips.
