County to start final stages of zoo master plan

The Seneca Park Zoo master plan will continue after being delayed in 2020 due to COVID-19.

The beginning stages of the plan’s final phases include the Trailside Café, a restaurant located between the Conference Center to the north and an existing food pavilion to the south.

Preparations are underway to start an exhibit of animals from rainforests across the globe titled “The Tropics,” which will include new ticketing and guest services, a gift shop and administration at the front of the zoo.

The final phase of the plan will be the continued renovation of “Cold Asia,” which encompasses the tiger exhibit and its surrounding area.

“The Seneca Park Zoo is an incredible resource for Monroe County and the surrounding region, attracting thousands of visitors every year,” County Executive Adam Bello said. “We’re really excited for the completion of these upgrades and additions, which will enhance the zoo experience with new exhibits and more amenities for family and residents alike.”
