Seneca Park Zoo: Kids Can Go Wild!

See the zoo with a child for maximum fun

The best way to see The Seneca Park Zoo is through the eyes of a child. So bring a 6-year old with you and you won’t miss a thing!

What we really liked about Seneca Park Zoo was the great views. The exhibits are constructed to allow you circle around the outside of the animal’s habitat, as well as pass through the center making for up close viewing of monkeys, otters, lions, penguins, rhinos and many others.

Best fun was feeding time at the Baboon House

Plan on a 2-3 hour visit. You can certainly find enough to do to stay longer, but this is a manageable sized zoo, you can see the whole thing in a few hours.

Pick up a map on the way in. The map has a schedule of all of the animal enrichment activities for each day. Don’t miss feeding times with the baboons.

The Zoo is open all year long. Closed the first Saturday in June for Zoobilation, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

The Zoo is located at 2222 St. Paul Street, Rochester, NY 14621.

Open  April 1 to October 31: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You may stay on grounds until 5 p.m. Zoo opens at 9:30 a.m. for our Zoo members. Click here for Open Late Tuesday hours. November 1 to March 31: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You may stay on grounds until 4 p.m.

Vegetarian Eats in Geneva

As a pescaterian, I love finding great new veggie stops in the Finger Lakes. Here is a great write up on where to dine in Geneva. BTW, Red Dove Café is awesome!

Not that Geneva

Despite it’s size, Geneva is home to several restaurants that offer great vegetarian food. Here’s my list of places to check-out:

1. Dallywater’s – this restaurant makes all their food from scratch and always has several delicious vegetarian options on the menu. Check of the vegetarian bangers and mash or the “vegetarian” meat pie.  In addition to the food, Dallywater’s has the nicest facade in the city.  You can sit in the lovely windows, enjoy your meal and watch the city go by.

2. The Leaf – responsible, organic, local, delicious.  Check out the veggie burger, banh-mi or risotto.  They also happen to have one of the best beer selections in town.

3.  Opus Espresso and Wine Bar – good coffee and the vegetarian burrito will keep you going for lunch and dinner!

4. Pure Grille & Curry – there are many options to choose from at this yummy restaurant. …
