One of the oldest in the U.S. and in existence since 1875, this zoo displays more than 1,000 species of animals and 300 types of plants on its 23-acre Delaware Park site. Newer attractions include the lion and tiger habitats, and the gorilla rain forest exhibit. Favorites include the children's petting zoo, polar bears and the North American Bison. Food, a seasonal carousel and train rides are available. This is a great way to visit your favourite animals in their naturalistic habitats. Especially worth mentioning is their new and lush Rainforest Falls exhibit.
Used to be completely outdated but they keep improving it every year. For a medium size community, this is a very good zoo. Not big but very good quality. Easy to get around. A great way to spend an afternoon.
We have moved all over and have experienced many zoos. This one is small by comparison, but as they update the exhibits, it is getting better. My kids really liked the sea lions' display and shows. The seals and sea lions swim in "rivers" that run under the walkway and we thought it was fun to follow them around. On colder days, there is a semi indoor room to watch them swim! I also liked that there is a playground and a dinosaur dig area for younger kids, or just for a change of pace! Additionally, the elephant and rhino exhibits are set up so that you are VERY close to the animals - better than most zoos on that note! You should try it at least once!
This is a Zoo established in 1875-thus updating has been needed for some time. Thanks to Dr. Donna Fernandez, a Maser Plan has resulted is major exhibit changes and additions starting in 2001. Currenting the Zoo is constructing a multilevel South American Rainforest which will be completed in late summer of 2008. The Master Plan is a water-based theme, and will involve all areas of the Zoo, with new exhibits and inter-active activities for all ages. Conservation will be at the heart of all of this renovation, and the public response has been most positive with both paid attendance and new Zoo membership noticbally higher
The Buffalo Zoo has been transforming rapidly over the past few years. New exhibits are opening every year that keep the place new. It is a great place to take a family for a few hours of fun in the summer or winter. A great value considering it costs less than tickets to a movie and a longer lasting experience.
