Located in the 14621 Neighborhood (on the East bank of the Genesee River), you'll find the Zoo spanning 15.5 acres of land. Home to over 90 species, you will have plenty to look at as you meander through the exhibits.
But, there is much more to the Zoo than just looking at animals. It is also a great place to learn. Do you like learning about mammals, reptiles, fish, birds or amphibians? Want to know which animals are endangered? Or maybe your interest is in conservation? Head to the Zoo.
When you get to the Zoo, you'll step out of Rochester and into Africa...
...and discover a different world inside our city.
Interested in a little Zoo history? Check this out: the Fredrick Law Olmsted Company created the plans for Seneca Park (read more Zoo History here).
One more important thing to know is that the Zoo is open all year long. They only close the first Saturday in June for Zoobilation, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
