Had some interesting animals I haven’t seen elsewhere, with great viewing at all exhibits. I was thoroughly impressed with their integration of multiple species together (ex. One exhibit had tamandua, monkeys, and toucans living in the same exhibit). Location is great to walk to from nearby neighbourhoods. I’d definitely like to visit again in a couple years once they’ve moved forward in their action plan!

The Buffalo Zoo is a nice place to visit especially with children. It is the third oldest zoo in the United States. Located on 23.5 acres (9.5 ha) of Buffalo’s Delaware Park, the Zoo exhibits a diverse collection of wild and exotic animals, and more than 320 different species of plants.

First to Review

This is a nice, but very small zoo. If you've been to the Milwaukee zoo it may be disappointing to go here.
The positives are:
* it doesn't take a full day to see the zoo
* you can see everything in one visit
* the giraffe exhibit was fun and kids and feed the giraffes at given times.
