It might be small but for Utica it's good size, to go with little kids they don't need much but love all the animals there! The playground is fun for kids! I've been to bigger zoos in different cities and by far the playground in the Utica zoo is the best!
Haven't been to the Utica zoo since I was a kid, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The zoo May not have the best animal selection, but what they do have was very active. I think in general you can get closer to the animals here than in many other zoos.
Part of the Utica zoo requires a bit of hiking. Nothing hard, but just something to be aware of.
This is a great day for a family outing. There are also events held in the evenings for adults.
Fun, family oriented, economic and didactic!!! my son love it!
Not a huge zoo, but a very nice way to spend an afternoon. The keepers are friendly and accessible for questions.
