I love this Zoo. Its a great place to bring the kids on nice days. The new elephant exhibit is so much better than it used to be. It can get pretty packed in the main building, but once you're out and about its very pleasant. The penguin exhibit is also very cool. They also do special events like the dinosaur event this year which was great!
This was a delightful zoo. We were in the area and I was looking for something to do in the morning; I enjoy zoos and as a zoo member at home I always look for reciprocal zoos when we travel. I am very happy that we visited, this is a very nice, medium sized zoo with a nice variety of animals. I feel that the highlight was the elephants, since I live in Pittsburgh, I am always interested in seeing other zoo elephant exhibits and families. I also enjoyed the penguin exhibit, the water is large enough for them to leap! Some of the indoor exhibits were very nice. Overall I enjoyed the zoo very much and recommend it to anyone else who enjoys zoos who might be in the area.
This zoo is a ton of fun and surprisingly big for the Syracuse area. The staff is very kind and certainly humane towards the animals. The zoo is very well taken care of with many different species to see. Definitely check it out if you're in the area.
Winter is an OK time here but lots of animals are elsewhere. Some have died or been sent to other zoos: python, lions, crocodiles. But lots to see. The habitats created for the animals are amazing. Plus, rates are lower in January and February.
This zoo is AMAZING! My husband and I went here for a date day and were not disappointed. I hope we make this a regular place to visit!
