Our family loves our membership at the Buffalo Zoo! Now that we live nearby it is great to walk or bike over. Many think the Zoo is too small, we love it as a place to go regularly.

In the Buffalo area recently and decided to visit the Buffalo Zoo. It is a smaller zoo but we had a good time. It was rather warm but did see most of the exhibits. Clean & friendly.
