Seneca Park Zoo inspires our community to connect, care for, and conserve wildlife and wild places. Situated on 15.5 acres along the Genesee River, the Zoo is a gem among Greater Rochester’s family attractions.


The Zoo leads conservation efforts locally, regionally and internationally. African lions, olive baboons, goats, and African elephants that reside in our A Step Into Africa Exhibit inspire guests to care about the Ngorongoro Crate, a unique conservation area in Tanzania.


A stop in the ECO Center introduces visitors to the playful North American river otter and living dinosaurs, the lake sturgeon, which help convey stories of successful species reintroduction into the Genesee River.


Visit the California sea lions and African penguins at Rocky Coasts Gallery, before heading to see the red pandas and snow leopards at our brand new Cold Asia area right next to the animal hospital.

The Zoo is open all year long. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
