Seneca Park

The Seneca Park Zoo is a but a small part of the greater 297-acre Seneca Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1893. There is a trout pond surrounded by pavilions, a playground and hiking trails that take you up close with the Genesee River.

Olmsted Trail South, 0.7 mi. (one way)

Both the North and South trails begin at Trout Pond. This south trail ends at the pedestrian bridge over the Genesee River and connects Seneca to Maplewood, its sister Olmstead-designed park.
